What do you view as your role and responsibilities as a health care provider and as a member of the nursing profession in addressing health inequities?

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted health inequities
that have been occurring in the United States and
worldwide. We have heard the phrase “we’re all in this
together” since this pandemic started.
However, Dr. Bowleg argues that “we are not all in this
together” (2020, p. 917, American Journal of Public
Health) on COVID-19. Dr. Grant, President of the
American Nurses Association, states that inequities in our
country are “the most important moral challenge of the
21st century” (ANA 2020 New Releases).
What are your thoughts about these perspectives? What
do you view as your role and responsibilities as a health
care provider and as a member of the nursing profession
in addressing health inequities? You may substantiate
your position and perspectives with trusted resources.
