The Cardiovascular Division at Washington University School of Medicine is a national leader in the delivery of high-quality cardiovascular care to a large, diverse patient population with a range of cardiovascular care needs, in training the next generation of leaders in cardiovascular medicine, and in conducting basic, translational, clinical, and population research to improve cardiovascular outcomes.
Cardiovascular Division Statement on Anti-Racism: We as a division stand in solidarity with our Black colleagues, trainees and students, staff, patients, and communities, in opposition to all forms of discrimination and injustice. We are committed to working to become intentionally and consciously anti-racist in all that we do, from education to research to clinical care. As cardiovascular professionals, we know all too well the ways in which a lack of equity in health care, education, employment, public safety, and housing impact cardiovascular and overall health among people and communities of color. These and other elements of structural and individual racism drive racial inequities that we must not let persist.
