Supporting the Department
We are living in an extraordinary era. COVID-19 has amplified health disparities and systemic racism as a public health issue, while senseless killings of Black people have simultaneously led to racial justice activism throughout the nation. Collectively, this moment is the outcome of centuries of inequities that disproportionately compromise the health status and quality of life for people of color. As a community that works daily to advance the health, prosperity, and the dignity of vulnerable populations, Georgetown University is called now with even greater urgency to act boldly and uphold these foundational commitments.
