“The AMA strongly supports the Biden administration’s comprehensive efforts to dismantle systemic racism and advance equity for all, particularly for historically marginalized communities who have been long underserved and overlooked in our country,” said AMA President Susan R. Bailey, MD.

“We will continue to oppose all forms of racism while pushing for anti-racist policies and practices that promote truth, healing, and reconciliation. As physicians and leaders in medicine, we commend the administration’s approach to center equity in the fight for a stronger, healthier, more unified nation that provides all people the opportunity to reach their full health potential.”
