A Statement from UCFS Healthcare

Racism is a social determinant of health. People of color know this. They experience it every day, whether it be the disproportionate impact of COVID-19, the physical violence perpetrated against them, or the health consequences resulting from years of trauma. Our role at UCFS is to be a safe space where everyone is treated with dignity and respect and where we seek to eliminate health disparities. Throughout the years since our founding in 1877 and for generations to come, UCFS will stand alongside and lift up those who suffer or are oppressed. As such, we add our voice to those who call for an end to injustice, brutality and systemic racism against black, indigenous, and people of color.
