Without sanctuary


I would again view this as a “must-read” for everyone. Written by a member of the division of general internal medicine at Johns Hopkins. I found the last two sentences to be particularly powerful: “Imagine if practicing medicine required an oath to actively dismantle systems of oppression and build sanctuaries in their place. Imagine if our Black patients came into our hospitals broken, tired, and weary, and instead of finding judgment and opposition, they found rest.”
