We stand united against any form of racism, discrimination or injustice.
It is hard to find words for devastating events we have witnessed in the past few weeks- I feel it is of critical importance to make a public statement supporting Black Lives in particular, when we have witnessed such appalling tragedy in the recent deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and so many others. We unequivocally stand in solidarity with the Black community, and the many others who have been victims of police brutality and ongoing racial injustice.
On behalf of Lake Travis Integrative Medicine, I wanted to say that this medical practice

aspires to support patients on their health journey no matter their gender, sexual orientation or the color of their skin. We hold this space for health transformation and healing and recognize that the journey and experiences are different for each patient. Racism and hate have no place here. But recent events have reminded us that we must do better.
During this time of reflection, listening, learning and planning for how we can transform away from a culture where this can occur, we must stay focused. It is possible to create a better world. I have been doing this work of reflecting on my own implicit bias and will hold myself accountable to continue to do so. To learn more, To do more. To stand up against racism and hate.
We can all choose not to be broken by all the challenges occurring now, but rather broken open for transformation for a better culture and a better world.
