Physicians Taking Anti-Discrimination Approach

In February 2020, just before the start of the pandemic and the first COVID-19 case in Marin County, Public Health Officer Dr. Matt Willis co-authored a blog post for Bay Area clinicians with Dr. Tomas Aragon, then Public Health Officer for San Francisco. It was a warning of the tendency to racialize blame in epidemics and reminding physicians to lead an anti-discrimination approach.

“We know that racial, ethnic and cultural discrimination cause bad health outcomes,” they wrote at the time. “In the case of an emerging illness, stigma about the illness makes people less likely to come forward, to seek help or ask questions.”

With the resurgence of anti-Asian sentiment in Bay Area and across the nation, the message remains timely. The Stop Asian Hate movement is gaining traction and boosting awareness. Read the short blog post
