As we celebrate Black History Month, the RNS recognizes the current impact of racial bias and discrimination in the healthcare industry today. We are committed to bringing awareness to these issues through intentional education and learning opportunities. We are striving to create a more inclusive space for healthcare professionals, patients, and their families.
Please take time today to watch this video from Lynn C. Smitherman, MD on The Impact of Bias, Discrimination and Racism on Health Care. Dr. Smitherman presented this content as our keynote at the 2021 14th Annual Rheumatology Nurses Society Conference. We believe the knowledge and wisdom shared can create deep and lasting change for all of us.
