MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — On Friday, Minnesota health care professionals joined together for 10 minutes of silence in support of “White Coats for Black Lives.”

“Today represents our commitment to improving racial inequities and health care disparities,” Hennepin Healthcare said in a statement.

Other health care providers in Minnesota that participated in the event were Children’s Minnesota, North Memorial Hospital and Maple Grove Hospital.

But, this wasn’t just happening in Minnesota.

This trend has spread to other health care systems across the nation.
