Our commitment to equity and social justice

Published

The BerbeeWalsh Department of Emergency Medicine strongly supports the Black Lives Matter movement. As Emergency Physicians, we value all life and are committed to protecting and promoting the health and safety of all members of our community. Every human being deserves to be protected from inhumane suffering. We are deeply committed to promoting equity and social justice, and implore our fellow citizens, regulators, oversight bodies, and others in positions of power to deter such tragedies.
