With more than 800,000 physicians across 45 specialties, the Council of Medical Specialty Societies (CMSS) deplores the negative impact of racism in our nation and of racial inequities in our healthcare system.  Racism in our society cannot be ignored as it undermines public health. CMSS steadfastly supports its member specialty societies working to promote equity and reduce the adverse impact of racism. We are committed to using our platform to improve the health of every patient we serve.
