WinR Responds to Recent Events
In the past few weeks, many have expressed outrage at the racial discrimination that has plagued our country for too long. Many of our members are hurting and we hurt with you. As an organization founded on the mission of mentorship to enhance the ability of its members to provide the highest quality of patient care, we condemn racism, discrimination and oppression. The Women in Retina stand alongside our colleagues to demand equal justice. Without racial justice, there will be no end to the racial disparities in healthcare.
We commit to fostering connection and healing that will help each of us demolish the systemic racism that dominates our society and culture. We commit to supporting our members and our larger community by creating safe spaces to process this national trauma. We commit to use our education, abilities, status as physicians, and influence to fight for justice for all and effect positive change.
With a heavy but determined heart,
The Board of Women in Retina
