Abstract

At this moment in the United States, we are battling two of the largest public health crises of our time: the COVID-19 pandemic and systemic racism, which has existed for centuries but recently came into sharper public focus. In tandem, these public health crises mean that the COVID-19 pandemic has placed a disproportionate burden of disease incidence, hospitalizations, and deaths on our most vulnerable communities. As medical professionals, there has never been a more important time to systematically address health equity in policy and practice.
