From a friend of Hunting For Thompson comes this open letter from America’s Healers, entitled: A Letter to Our Patients in the Trump Era. Authored by The Social Justice Coalition of the Cambridge Health Alliance and signed by over 1,460 health care professionals. It is well worth the read. They are concerned about what happens after the inauguration of President-elect Trump on January 20th, 2016. Here’s the opening lines:
In this new and uncertain time in American history, we healthcare professionals feel a special responsibility. We strive to keep our clinical judgment unclouded by our political persuasions, yet we cannot help but see the manifestations of our society’s ills in our everyday practice. For our patients, poverty, violence, and marginalization are not mere abstractions but instead harsh realities. As a result, we feel compelled to act and advocate against any threat to our patients’ well-being.1 (full letter linked below).
