DentaQuest Statement On The Juneteenth Holiday And The Mission To Achieve Equity In Health Care
Statement from DentaQuest President and CEO Steve Pollock on the Juneteenth holiday
“Tomorrow we will celebrate Juneteenth! We must also pause to recognize the work that remains to achieve true equity. Let there be no doubt - health care is one of the greatest drivers of inequity in this country. At DentaQuest, we are committed to breaking down the barriers to access and care that have impacted people of color for generations, and we stand ready to work with any partner who shares in this mission. So tomorrow we will reflect and celebrate – while continuing to work to achieve true equity in health care.”
