ASPEN Stands Against Racism and Health Disparities
The events of 2020 have been profound – first the COVID-19 pandemic and now the pandemic of increased awareness of systemic racism triggered by the recent killing of George Floyd. Both highlight the realities of discrimination, inequality, and health disparities, especially as they pertain to people of color.
ASPEN is dedicated to equal rights for all people, regardless of race, gender, orientation, or affiliation. We firmly believe that diversity strengthens science, healthcare — and humanity.
ASPEN will continue to fight racism and inequality in all that we do. Our vision includes a world where every person matters and has the same opportunities to pursue their dreams or goals. ASPEN stands in solidarity with our Black colleagues.
