The pandemic has revealed what we in public health have known for some time; there are real divisions in the way we address health care in our country. Sadly, these disparities were never more evident in the way people of color suffered under the clutches of COVID-19, in all its forms. We can do better. With the professionalism, training and incredible network offered through our association, we strive each day to break down barriers to quality health care through the incredible commitment of Community Health Workers (CHWs). As we celebrate the important history of the Black community this month, let us not forget the sacrifices made, and yet how far we have to go to ensure everyone has access to quality health care. CHWs make this happen every day! Thank you for your hard work and dedication!
