May 25, 2021 - George Floyd Inaugural Remembrance
The Minnesota Chapter of the American College of Healthcare Executives acknowledges that today marks the one-year anniversary since the murder of George “Perry” Floyd in the city of Minneapolis. Over the last year, the spotlight on racial injustice in Minnesota has heightened healthcare leaders focus on health equity. We believe that healthcare organizations need to be at the forefront of working to actively remove barriers and access to care. ACHE MN supports leaders and organizations in achieving greater equity and in so doing we encourage members and friends of ACHE MN to participate in events that will celebrate the life of George. See links below for event details.
