HealthConnect One stands in solidarity with Black people against racism in all its forms.
We are angry and saddened by the continuing injustices that Black people experience, all of which affect our public health. We will continue to work alongside Black communities, families, and advocates to fight racism and to uplift their health and well-being, now and in the future. – Jeretha McKinley, HC One Interim E.D.
