  • From the President
  • To be silent is to be complicit.
    As physicians, it is our duty to speak up – on behalf of our patients, team members, industry partners and colleagues who are members of our African American communities – that we stand shoulder to shoulder with them in their fight against systemic racism.
    As healers, we condemn violence and brutality. As citizens, we condemn injustice. 
    Though our voice may not be the loudest, we join it with other voices so it becomes one with many, demanding equal rights and justice for our brothers and sisters.
    Together, we stand in solidarity, united in common cause. Black Lives Matter.
    Robert L. Barrack, MD, President of The Hip Society
