Anti-Racism & Health Equity

Chair: Kate Sadak, MD, FAAP
Chapter Diversity Champion: Kimara Gustafson, MD, FAAP

In 2021, MNAAP’s Anti-Racism Task Force and Poverty and Disparities Work Group merged to create a brand new group that is now called the Anti-Racism & Health Equity (ARHE) workgroup.

The purpose of the workgroup is to facilitate a state AAP chapter structure for its members that is just, diverse, equitable, inclusive and accessible.  We also work to promote anti-racist health equity for all children o f MN, as identified by MN communities and families.

Meetings occur quarterly on Mondays from 12:15 to 1 p.m. via Zoom.
