Systemic Racism is a Public Health Crisis

Huntsman Cancer Institute joins Utah’s health care systems/hospital to address the public health crisis of racism. As members and leaders from Utah’s health care organizations, we believe systemic racism is a real threat to the health of our patients, our families, and our communities. Systemic racism includes a complex array of economic and resource inequalities found throughout significant parts of the U.S. society. Domestic tranquility, for everyone, is an achievable goal.
