Health & Medicine Stands with Orlando
Along with most of the world, we at Health & Medicine Policy Research Group are saddened and outraged at the events that took place in Orlando early Sunday morning.
Our communities, indeed our world, are healthier and more vibrant when all people are valued, honored, and lifted up. A society that devalues any of its people devalues the whole.
Homophobia, racism, anti-Muslim, anti-immigrant actions and policies cannot be tolerated here or anywhere. The ready availability of semi-automatic weapons in the United States is unacceptable and we must all link arms in support of policymakers to stand up to the NRA and other forces that refuse to regulate guns despite the massive loss of human lives. Health & Medicine stands with all of those who have been impacted by this heinous act.
