From the SVHC Leadership
In light of the recent deaths of Black Americans at the hands of police and the national groundswell of attention to and demonstrations against the mistreatment of Black Americans, Sacopee Valley Health Center, a Federally Qualified Health Center receiving federal funding, stands in solidarity with all those affected by these events and condemns racism in all forms.
Violence against and systemic oppression of Black Americans is a public health crisis. We recognize that disparities exist in access to healthcare and disease outcomes amongst individuals of color. Our commitment to provide quality and sensitive care to all members of our community requires us to examine our own practices and implicit biases and strive to be aware of, confront, and correct prejudices.
Respect and value for all lives starts with acknowledging and addressing the inequalities in our systems. We stand with those who are bringing attention to the unequal treatment of Black Americans. Through reflection, education, and action we will grow stronger as a health center, community, and country.
