Do People of Color Face Racism in Heathcare?

Black Lives MatterThe Black Lives Matter protests are continuing into their second week with no signs of abating. And that’s a good thing.

The fact is that this pandemic is stirring up our deepest, most primordial fears around survival.Every human being has these primal survival fears – of death, of being alone, of not having enough money, and of living in a dangerous world. Many of us in the West have been fortunate enough that we’ve rarely…See More
