IPA’s Response to Racial Injustice
One Profession. One Voice.
The Iowa Pharmacy Association stands united against racial and social injustice. We are deeply saddened by the recent demonstrations of racial violence, and we must act against all forms of racism. IPA supports this important statement issued today:
"As pharmacists, we took an oath that includes, as its first statement, “I will consider the welfare of humanity and relief of suffering my primary concerns.” Humanity includes all people, and we have the responsibility in this country to care for those who are disproportionately suffering. As health care professionals, we are trained to provide the best care to all and to “advocate for change that improves patient care.” Advocating against racism, all forms of discrimination and injustice can improve patient care. This is an urgent priority."
