The American Board of Surgery stands with the medical community to decry the sickness of racism. We acknowledge that systemic racism in this country damages the health, welfare, safety, and very lives of people of color and therefore our whole society. We affirm our commitment to identify and work to eliminate the impact of racism in our organization, our profession, and our country.
