A Message from the Dean of ACOM:
I believe that I speak for the entire ACOM community in expressing the pain and sadness we all share in the death of George Floyd. We recoil from the images of his death because they are directly contrary to our core values as humans – the core values proclaimed in ACOM’s mission statement.
At ACOM, we strive for a life of integrity, compassion, and positive action. Our core values include Respect and Diversity. ACOM stands strong in support of all people who face discrimination because of the color of their skin, or on any other basis.
I stand with the entire ACOM community now in reaffirming our core values. Thanks to all ACOM students, faculty, and staff for your ongoing and unwavering commitment.
James C. Jones, DO, FACEP
Dean, Alabama College of Osteopathic Medicine
