@justinverlander and I are so grateful to be able to donate to the Institute for Health Equity Research (IHER) launched by Mount Sinai Hospital in New York. Their dedicated team will help save lives and work to close racial and social disparities, not just in the present, but for generations to come. Also, we are proud to partner with @CanadaGoose who is donating 20,000 scrubs to Mount Sinai New York to continue to protect the healthcare workers on the frontlines fighting this virus. It has been well documented that COVID-19 has disproportionately affected minorities and low-income populations. There are several theories as to why this has been happening, which is why Mount Sinai has taken the next step by creating this dedicated research facility in order to produce long-term change. They are working to understand the effects of health issues, including COVID-19, affecting at-risk communities, specifically those that are non-white, low-income, immigrant, uninsured, and LGBTQ+ across all ages, genders, and abilities. The IHER team is dedicated to identifying problems and developing solutions to combat systemic healthcare disparities, as well as preparing the next generation to carry on these actions. Thank you to all of the healthcare workers and researchers at Mount Sinai New York who are working tirelessly to make a positive difference for those in need. #covid19
