Remembering Pioneering African American Heroes of Healthcare in Honor of Black History Month

February 1st marks the beginning of Black History month in the United States. It is a time when we remember and reflect on the achievements of individuals of color who have made contributions and sacrifices for the betterment of our society. This year is a year like no other in the long history of celebrating Black History. We continue to see social inequities and social injustices impacting our Black and brown communities. During this pandemic we also continue to see a disproportionate infection rate of Covid-19 and number of Covid-19 related deaths in our Black and brown communities. But there is hope on the horizon. I am hopeful that with the new administration pushing for more people to get vaccinated we will turn the corner and get this pandemic under control.

There have been many significant contributions made by African Americans in the field of healthcare and I will be highlighting just a few during this month of celebration.

AFT President Randi Weingarten says the union’s leaders and members “can’t wait to get started” on the work ahead “with an administration that will embrace and fight for the values we hold dear.”
