Racism’s Impact on US Health

Despite expansions in health insurance coverage under the Affordable Care Act, racial and ethnic minorities still are more likely to have unequal access, receive poorer quality care and have worse health outcomes. The next webinar in the APHA series, Unequal Treatment: Disparities in Access, Quality and Care, on Tuesday, August 25, will address these issues.

Join Linda Rae Murray, APHA Past President and social justice advocate; Brian Smedley, co-founder and executive director of the National Collaborative for Health Equity and Michelle van Ryn, director of the Research Program on Equity and Quality in Healthcare Encounters for a timely discussion about unconscious bias in health care and what’s being done to address those inequities to improve the public’s health.
