Duke students are passionate about addressing healthcare disparities, and many use this passion to pursue a career in the healthcare field. Lately though, as many may have heard from Bernie Sanders’ rally last Friday, a recently popular John Oliver skit and a well-circulated study in the Lancet, the current healthcare system needs systemic change.

The summer after freshmen year, I went to a summer camp in China. Our group was made of very different people, but one girl stood out amongst the group. She was awkward, often missed the point, and wasn’t particularly friendly. Together, we started excluding her from various activities, not respecting her in conversation, and talking behind her back. A couple people in particular were quite intentional in their bullying, while the rest of us let it happen. Eventually, she felt so left out that she stayed in her room all day, even on group outings, and didn’t talk to anyone for the rest of the trip. Many times, I felt an urge to speak up in that girl’s defense. Here was a clear case of bullying and unfair treatment, and it would have been a clear decision to stand up for her.
