As healthcare professionals in the communities we are honored to serve, we at Primary Health Network are deeply saddened by the recent tragic events that have caused pain for so many. We condemn all forms of prejudice and racism, and we want to express our sorrow to the families of the victims and to all those who are suffering.
Since their inception more than 50 years ago, Community Health Centers like ours have worked tirelessly to overcome inequities in all forms, including violence, injustice, racism, prejudice, and poverty. In keeping with our mission, we provide access to healthcare services regardless of race or any other personal identifier, and we are drawn to understand and address any inequality which erodes public and personal health.
We encourage everyone to find constructive ways in which voices can be heard. Our hope is that we will come together as a community to begin meaningful conversations about what is required to inspire change.
Because ours is, foremost, a caring profession, we are committed to providing compassionate care for all who are in physical as well as emotional pain, especially during these challenging times.
