The systematic racism and discrimination that oppresses Black lives, other people of color and diverse sexual or gender orientation is unacceptable and there is no neutrality in the fight against it. We join that fight now.
This is just the beginning of an ongoing commitment—one that will be continually updated with tactical progress and new initiatives. I view this work as the first step to support, protect, and empower Black lives and other groups who have been oppressed.
As a Primary Care Provider I have the power and responsibility to create positive change. That starts with covering topic areas we have ignored, empowering voices we have neglected, representing those we have overlooked, exposing truths we have avoided, and challenging standards we have always just accepted. Actions matter more than words right now. Impact matters more than intention always.
I will not feature products, brands, writers, experts, influencers, or other sources with a known history of racism, discrimination or hatred.
If I have unknowingly done so, I will work to immediately correct my mistakes.
I approach this commitment as an ongoing process built on a foundation of empathy. I promise to listen, learn, and help you care for your physical and mental health. In order to best do so,I am dedicated to educating myselves on anti-racism and anti-discrimination. I will work hard to cover how these injustices impact health conditions, fitness choices, nutrition access, parenting, education, mental health, and more.
I invite you to hold me accountable and trust I am doing the same with my partners and employees. Please share feedback about how I can continue to improve and grow, with the aim of working together, not creating shame that may cause more division. I want to hear how you feel you are, or are not, represented in what you see across this web site. Please email me use the contact page and use the channel that is most suitable to you.
