Unequal Treatment: The Unjust Death of Dr. Susan Moore
The circumstances surrounding the treatment and subsequent death on December 20, 2020, of Susan Moore MD, a Black physician, cannot go unaddressed. We must confront institutional racism in health care by fighting not only for equitable and universal coverage, but for substantive institutional accountability and the eradication of racism in all forms.
