More Work Lies Ahead

‘Today, we learned that a jury has returned a guilty verdict in the case of former officer Derek Chauvin, but this conviction doesn’t change the immeasurable grief we feel as a nation in the face of continued injustice and violence against people of color. There is still significant work that lies ahead—nationally and locally.’Stephen K. Klasko, MD, MBA, President, Thomas Jefferson University, CEO, Jefferson Health (April 20, 2021)
