Statement on Racism, Social Injustice, Inequality and Inequity

Racism and social injustices in all forms must end. Inteleos and its family of certification Councils, the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS), the Alliance for Physician Certification & Advancement (APCA) and the Point-Of-Care Ultrasound Certification Academy (PCA), support peaceful protests and the implementation of lasting solutions to end racism, social injustice, inequality and inequity.

Inteleos is committed to continually address issues of inequality and inequity through our areas of expertise, healthcare and certification. According to the World Health Organization, healthcare inequality, mainly due to a lack of access to quality care, is directly linked to many social injustices. As a healthcare organization, Inteleos’ mission to protect the public through individual certifications means that our goal is for all people to have access to the validated and extraordinary skills of our Registrants and Certificants. Unfortunately, healthcare inequality largely affects those who need medical care the most. As a global healthcare organization, we will continue to bolster our mission and work tirelessly towards increasing healthcare equity by striving to assure all people can get the highest quality healthcare possible.
