As an administrative leader at one of South Carolina’s hospital systems, I am humbled and inspired by the brave frontline health care workers across our state who continue to care for patients every day in the face of COVID-19. They are the true heroes of this pandemic.
I’m honored to support them as chief diversity officer and director of diversity and language services at AnMed Health, a role that has provided me with a unique perspective on how this virus is disproportionately impacting communities of color.
It has been reported in areas across the country and recognized by the U.S. Surgeon General that African American and Hispanic/Latin communities have been hit especially hard by COVID-19. And South Carolina is no different.
