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.

CEO Imamu Tomlinson, MD, MBA shares his perspective on the important qualities for leadership in Becker’s Healthcare Podcast: Leadership Lessons.

Earlier this year, Dr. Tomlinson reflected on the important role healthcare leaders can play in bringing healthcare justice to our communities: Inclusion and Equality in Healthcare podcast.

As an African American healthcare CEO and emergency physician in an underserved rural community, healthcare justice is close to my heart.

As a country, as a community, we are only as healthy as the most vulnerable among us…. in order for us to deal with this pandemic, then we actually need to be focused on improving baseline healthcare for everyone.
