What's Needed Most

01

Although evidence of racial & ethnic health care disparities is substantial, developing interventions to eliminate these disparities remains limited. Pursuing a strategic &  cohesive response to address this problem is essential.

02

Require bias training in all medical schools & also yearly re-certifications in bias training for all current medical professionals to help practitioners  identify, understand, & unlearn implicit bias in patient care.

03

Increase Providers In Underserved Communities: Despite efforts to increase the number of health professionals in medically underserved areas, members of racial/ethnic minority groups are still underrepresented in the health care workforce & are more likely than Whites to live in neighborhoods that lack adequate health resources.

04

Expand Health Coverage: Health insurance matters in determining whether & when people get necessary medical care, where they receive care, & how healthy people are.  Racial/ethnic minority populations  are disproportionately represented among those without any health coverage.
