Our Statement on Injustice, Inequality and Racism

We join our fellow Americans in expressing our sadness and revulsion at the killing of George Floyd. This horrific event reminds us how racism permeates healthcare, social and economic systems, obstructing access for people of color. Life without brain disease means life without brain disease for everyone. We are determined to do better.
