SEA Statement on Recent Events
Friday, June 12, 2020
The Society for Education in Anesthesia (SEA) is deeply saddened by the recent events that have impacted our nation, culminating with the inhumane deaths of Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd, and Breonna Taylor. Our society supports equitable justice, education resulting in awareness and tolerance, and most importantly respect for humanity.
SEA values an inclusive community, and as such we celebrate diversity and the richness it brings to our organization and our practice. SEA firmly rejects racism in any form.
SEA will continue to lead by using its platform to educate physicians about the public health crisis in our country and equip them with the information to collectively dispel hate. As a society we will foster dialogue in our institutions and training programs and cultivate respect for basic human rights for all individuals.
SEA is fully engaged in its vision of excellence through education to create a brighter future where every patient can be treated, and every healthcare worker can feel valued and safe from discrimination and persecution.
