While this may be a new awakening for some, racial inequity and racial violence have deep roots in this country. Public displays of support are important. Additionally true healing and big steps toward resolution will require ALL of us to demand change, take individual action and take collective action. Change requires each of us to get involved.
Compassionate care is not only in our code of ethics, but it is at the core of our practice as athletic trainers. Now is an opportunity to turn our compassion into action in support of our black friends, colleagues and the patients we serve, throughout the country. Therefore, we want to hear from you.
