URGENT CARE ASSOCIATION

UCA UCA Position Statements

Legislation

 

UCA Position Statements state the association's position on issues related to the urgent care industry, the practice of urgent care medicine, and/or urgent care professionals/clinicians.

The Urgent Care Association recognizes that systemic racism undermines the health and well-being of the individuals and communities we serve.  Ongoing violence, racial inequality and discrimination negatively impact mental and physical health and contribute to unequal access to quality healthcare, and quality of life. Racism is among the CDC’s list of complex factors that drive health disparities and risk among people of color, and we acknowledge this urgent public health issue as one that affects our own team members and their families, our association members and their patients. As part of our mission to advance and support our industry through education, advocacy, and community awareness, we are committed to standing against racism and prejudice, toward the better health of all.
