Positive Responses from Hospital

In classism, communities, critical literacy, language, poverty, social class, stephanie jones on October 15, 2007 at 5:14 pm

I received two phone calls this morning from representatives of Athens Regional Hospital. They were each genuinely concerned about the experience I had at the hospital and vowed to make a change, including conducting sensitivity training through their Human Resources department. Each of them said that such comments are never appropriate, but particularly inappropriate in the context of Athens Regional Hospital in Clarke County.

Kudos to Athens Regional for taking a stand against classism and racism in their health care facilities.

And for the rest of you out there – silence is complicity. Speak out – do something to make a change.
