An Open Letter to the American Medical Association
by
Julio Gonzalez, M.D., J.D.

I read with great disgust your "Organization Strategic Plan to Embed Racial Justice and Advance Health Equity." Seldom have I read a more destructive, divisive, and inflammatory document by a professional organization, and I have never been more ashamed of being associated with the American Medical Association at any time in my career.

The suggestion that our country owes anyone "equity" because of "past injustices" is revolting.

The balance:

Great letter. But the AMA and the medical industry in general has been "woke" for years, decades. For example, for years, the W.H.O. (World Health Org) has been ranking different countries healthcare systems and ranking the U.S. low. Simply because they mainly use criteria based on "equity", "diversity", not actual healthcare ability performance and technological advances.

I have worked with many doctors through the years and yes, many of these docs are leftist social justice types, especially the younger ones in the last 10 years.
