A Statement on Racial Injustice and Recent Events
June 9, 2020
As our nation is currently dealing with an unprecedented mix of significant health, social and financial issues, we want to reach out to the patients and their loved ones who have been participating in our research program. We will continue to update the website as events unfold.
Our nation mourns the tragic and senseless deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, AhmaudArbery, and the countless other black individuals who have lost their lives to police brutality and institutional racism. It is a vivid reminder of the ongoing racial inequalities and unacceptable indignities that so many of our citizens constantly endure. These events should lead everyone to recognize how much more work our society must do to attain liberty and justice for all. As a nation, we have considerable work to do.
