Eliminating Racial Disparities: What Can You Do?
While the health of Americans overall has improved dramatically over the last century, these gains have not been shared equally, with racial and ethnic minorities continuing to have worse health outcomes. Examples of this include higher rates of hypertension, myocardial infarctions, strokes, heart failure, and chronic kidney disease and lower life expectancy see in black individuals; and the increased rates of diabetes and infant mortality rate seen in Native Americans.
Education on healthcare disparities has focused on statistics and awareness. To address this issue effectively, this program will provide physicians with an understanding of the causes of healthcare disparity and tools to help achieve healthcare equity. Some topics covered:
Social Determinants of Health
