Dozens of health advocates demanded at DC’s Committee on Health hearing on March 5.

“Every day I see, first hand the effect racist policies have on the health of people. I see my patients dying and their families crying… NOT fully funding UMC is a racist policy.  Not having a level-1 trauma center or high-risk maternal/neonatal care is a racist policy.” - Chaand Ohri, clinician at Washington Hospital center.
