The American Society of Diagnostic and Interventional Nephrology (ASDIN) strongly opposes acts of discrimination and racism and grieves with our African-American patients and colleagues, our communities, and our nation. The tragic death of George Floyd is a stark reminder of the constant ongoing struggles of inequality and injustice.  As healthcare professionals dealing with a global pandemic that has affected minority communities disproportionately, our members have also seen firsthand the havoc created by the disease and existing health disparities. Now more than ever, it is imperative that we all come together to fight against racism, discrimination, crippling health disparities and commit to ensuring equity for all. 

 

In furtherance of our mission, ASDIN values diversity, inclusion, tolerance, respect for others, and, above all, the value of human life. The American Society of Diagnostic and Interventional Nephrology vows to continue to raise a collective voice against injustice.

 

Statement by Executive Committee - Anil Agarwal, MD;  Vandana Dua Niyyar, MD;   Bharat Sachdeva, MD and Monnie Wasse, MD - on behalf of ASDIN
