CHET's Statement on Racism
Racism constitutes a public health crisis born out of the legacy of slavery and continued oppression. This public health crisis manifests itself in numerous forms: police violence; severely impeded access to healthcare; and the disproportionate prevalence of many preventable conditions including maternal mortality, diabetes, asthma, hypertension, heart disease, and cancer. Racism is a public health threat that undermines health equity.
