Gary Butts, MD, discusses how diversity drives Mount Sinai's award-winning health equity work. He said, “It's not my bucket to carry alone.

There's only so much pioneering a single individual can do and frankly, folks shouldn't agree to it. And just because you are Black or Latinx, or LGBTQ and an issue or policy might affect you directly, doesn't mean that you should be the one expected to lean and lean forward while everybody else gets a pass.”
