Healthcare Justice Perspectives
Healthcare Justice Starts With Us
As healthcare leaders and clinicians, we must “walk the walk” to promote inclusiveness and recognition of inequality. The noticeable influence of racism permeates heavily throughout our society, with healthcare injustice being one of the most pervasive and dangerous determinants.
At Vituity we are committed to creating a more equitable healthcare system for all. We are joining crucial conversations on healthcare inequities, enforcing culturally competent care standards in our organization and actively creating pathways for future generations of diverse leaders.
