Mount Sinai opposes and condemns all forms of racism, bigotry, and hate. We stand with our Asian and Asian American students, faculty, trainees, patients, and staff, and with all members of our community who experience marginalization and bias. An attack on any one of us is an attack on us all.
We recommit to our effort to create a learning and work environment that is free of anti-Asian violence and racism, to develop interventions that are responsive to racial trauma, and to provide resources to support students, faculty, and staff members who are directly impacted by any form of racism.
Recognized annually every April during National Minority Health Month, Black Maternal Health Week serves to raise awareness to the state of Black maternal health; amplify the voices and experiences of Black women, families, and communities; and highlight the systemic inequities that have led to alarming rates of maternal mortality among Black women compared to other racial/ethnic groups. View our “Events” page for featured events and resources in recognition of this important cause.
National Minority Health Month seeks to build awarness around health disparities that continue to affect racial and ethnic minority populations. Take time this month to encourage action through health education and awareness around conditions that disproportionately impact communities of color.
Search through our diversity, equity, and inclusion resources for information on system-wide efforts as well as catalogs and guides including articles, books, and more around health equity, disparities, and understanding racism, prejudice, and bias in America.
In this powerful book, Mary-Frances Winters shares how to deal with sensitive subjects in a way that brings people together instead of driving them apart; offering detailed guidance for structuring conversations about topics once considered taboo to discuss in the workplace.
