Arthur Ashe Institute for Urban Health's Statement on Social Justice and Racism
Today, we are at a time in our history where human emotion, morality and righteous indignation are fueling a call to action and we need to urgently answer that call for systemic change. Therefore, we at the Arthur Ashe Institute, stand in solidarity with those in our nation and around the world against these heinous acts of racism.
“I have tried to keep on with my striving because this is the only hope I have of ever achieving anything worthwhile and lasting.” – Arthur Ashe
We educate and support the future generation of diverse health professionals and we meet people where they are, both literally and figuratively, in settings such as barbershops, salons, and faith-based settings, connecting people to the information, tools and resources they need to make informed health decisions.

Working From Home Best Practices
During this period of recommended social distancing, many of us have found ourselves working from home, schooling from home, or just being home more often because of the current public health emergency. Spending more time at home makes it easy to break out of our normal daily routine. Snacks and meals are easier to reach, and the opportunity for some physical activity may be limited. Having your kids around more than usual may also feel different and could be stressful.
