Racial Disparities in Healthcare

Studies show that Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) are more likely to receive inaccurate diagnoses and insufficient pain management. Additionally, patients report better outcomes with a provider of a similar racial or ethnic background. Yet, only 21 percent of Black patients and 19 percent of Hispanic patients are able to receive care from a provider of a similar background

By addressing biases and racial disparities in healthcare, we can improve outcomes for vulnerable and underserved patients.
