Michigan Medicine unequivocally recognizes racism as a public health issue, and we should be standing out as leaders against inequality. We are committed to creating fundamental change that leads to a culture of anti-racism, and a medical school and health system that are leaders in equity, justice and inclusiveness for people of all colors.
