“Antiracism requires action-oriented work and calls us to ask, how will we work to become antiracist? How will we change our institutional culture and systems to become antiracist? As Latina medical students, we have seen and experienced racism in many aspects of society and have felt the need to change our institutional culture. If we act now, we will foster physician leaders adequately equipped to address health disparities. We are calling on other Latinx people, other non-Black people, and allies in medicine to go beyond these protests and commit to the journey of antiracism and health equity for all.”

Yesenia Salazar and Camila Hurtado are medical students.

They share their stories and discuss their KevinMD article, “Declaring racism as a public health crisis from the lens of two Latinx student doctors.”
