Society of Asian Academic Surgeons Statement

The current SARS-CoV2 pandemic has caused changes in our society that, only weeks ago, we might not have imagined. We know that many of our members, their friends, colleagues, and family are on the front line of caring for patients with this virus and many have been personally affected by the pandemic. In times of stress, people may not be at their best, and may use this as an avenue for bigotry, bias, and hatred. This cannot be tolerated. Diversity and inclusivity are key to the mission of the Association of Women Surgeons, and we proudly stand with the Society of Asian Academic Surgeons and condemn the geographic characterization of this virus, or bigotry against any members of our communities.    
Our enemy is COVID-19, not each other. We hope that you will join us.
