Washington, D.C. – On June 5, 2020, 14 national pharmacy organizations released a joint statement recognizing the critical issues we are facing with the presence of two national pandemics, COVID-19 and racism and discrimination. Unfortunately, both issues persist – COVID-19 has resulted in high death rates that disproportionately affect people of color; and the persistence of systemic racism and discrimination continues to contribute to racial and health inequities.
