Racism is a Public Health Crisis

Racism is a public health problem. As an organization, our mission is to offer safe and affordable medication to Minnesotans in need, provide continuity of care and reduce waste by redistributing unused medications. 

 

It is important, especially for white people, to listen more and talk less. The following resources are an excellent place to start learning:

Anti-Racism Resources 

Racial Equity Tools for Health and Healthcare 

The RoundtableRx team will continue to reflect and act on our organizational values of accessibility, safety, resourcefulness, equity and sustainability. We work to live our values using an authentic and anti-racist approach to help improve public health in Minnesota.
