Statement on Racial Injustice from Quality Interactions

Our country is in a pivotal moment. Against the backdrop of a pandemic that has disproportionately impacted communities of color at staggering rates, tens of thousands of Americans in all fifty states are protesting to demand an end to racial injustice and police brutality. We can no longer turn away from the reality of racism and racial inequality in America. 

Structural racism is bigger than any one of us, and yet each one of us has a part to play in its dismantling. In the field of healthcare, there is much work to be done. Consider just two statistics:

The healthcare experienced by Black people in America is not equal to that experienced by Non-Hispanic White people. We can no longer tolerate this injustice that leads to the unnecessary loss of Black lives.

Quality Interactions is committed to breaking the cycle of healthcare inequity. Our company was born of a mission to educate and empower healthcare professionals to improve their practice in ways shown to decrease racial and ethnic disparities in care. 

We stand ready to link arms in unity with others working toward a more just and equitable society.
