Sign ASHP's Petition Calling for Inclusion of Pharmacists on COVID-19 Health Equity Task Force

Published: February 26, 2021

ASHP is deeply concerned about the persistence of health inequities in many communities. This issue has taken on new urgency as communities of color are disproportionately impacted by COVID-19. Pharmacists' status as trusted healthcare professionals is nearly unmatched. Our accessibility and expertise make us an asset and essential source of information for the public, particularly in medically underserved areas. 

Today, ASHP submitted a statement to President Biden’s COVID-19 Health Equity Task Force, focusing on pharmacists’ role in helping to address health disparities in COVID-19 care. Our colleague, Dr. Vivian Bradley Johnson, also submitted a statement sharing the experience of the Parkland Health and Hospital System in addressing health disparities related to COVID-19. 

ASHP also launched a petition to call on the White House to ensure pharmacy professionals are represented in the Biden administration’s newly appointed COVID-19 Health Equity Task Force. 

We need your help to make sure the Biden administration understands the essential role pharmacists play in testing, treatment, and vaccination to address disparities in COVID-19 care. Please sign the petition on to add your voice to this effort.
