Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health Looks To Address Internal Systemic Racism
Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health has declared racism a public health crisis, along with 38 other members of the national Healthcare Anchor Network. The national organization said it would double down to address systemic racism within its respective communities.
Officials at Dartmouth-Hitchcock say they took a step towards addressing the problem in June when they created a task force on diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging.
Joanne Conroy, CEO and President of Dartmouth-Hitchcock, said it was important for Dartmouth-Hitchcock to assess the problem first by listening to community members.
