A Message from the AFMR on Racism & Social Inequities

This is a challenging time for our nation and for our members. As we continue to face a pandemic that highlighted disparities in the health of our communities, recent events further demonstrate the inequities and systemic racism that are prevalent in our society.

As an organization whose important mission is to "develop and mentor tomorrow's leaders in medical research", we recognize and acknowledge the pain that these events have caused our members, colleagues, mentors, mentees, patients and communities. The AFMR will continue to seek opportunities to support trainees and their mentors and to lead medical research that reflects the important values of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Let us work together to address the disparities that we see firsthand in our healthcare system and in our communities.
