“Racism and violence are dangerous threats to public health. They cause unnecessary suffering and have no place in our world.
Cleveland Clinic condemns violence and incidents of hate against Asians and Asian Americans, especially during this pandemic. The horrific shootings in Atlanta this week have disturbed us all and these hurtful events have touched many of our patients, colleagues and neighbors.
Our mission is caring for life, researching for health and educating those who serve. Inclusion is our core value. Caring for the community has been our priority for 100 years.
We are stronger when we work together and support each other as a global community. As we help shape the future of healthcare, the world needs to be unified in advancing health for every person in need.
We will continue to give voice to those who experience unfair treatment and disparities.”
