In honor of all who are impacted by social injustice and violence, physicians and providers across the country will be participating in the White Coats for Black Lives’ 8 minutes and 46 seconds of silent observance, at 1 p.m. this afternoon.
Dedicated health care colleagues of hospitals, clinics and physician practices will kneel in silent reflection and commitment – either at home or while at work – to improve the health and safety of people of color. We support this opportunity to support one another in the midst of community unrest.
If you choose to participate virtually or in your hospital or clinic, please maintain social distance and wear a mask and white coat in an area that does not involve patient care. Share your photos as an expression of care online with #WhiteCoatsforBlackLives and #HereBesideYou (check in to your location).
Please also email photos to News@stjoeshealth.org (SEMI audience) with permission to be posted in our newsletter and social media.
