JUNETEENTH, A Period of ReflectionFriday, June 19, 2020
McGregor and its Teams shared in a Period of Reflection for 9-minutes on June 19, 2020
- To acknowledge racism as a threat to the health, well-being, and quality of life of people of color
- Encourage PACE organizations to publicly recognize racism as a public health issue and to support the end of racial inequality in our communities.
- Racism is a public health crisis.
The PACE Model of Care aims to be "the most innovative, accessible, valuable and effective model of care" for individuals with significant health care needs, a disproportionate number of whom are Black Americans and other persons of color. There is no room for injustice, discrimination, or racism in PACE.
It was a very moving 9-minutes for all who participated.
McGregor and McGregor PACE take accountability, we take bold steps and we take difference to heart because, without diversity and commitment to equality, we are unable to move forward together.
