The end of National Minority Health Month is a great opportunity to raise awareness of health disparities, which impact racial and ethnic minorities disproportionately. Despite much progress, there is still much ground to cover when it comes to making sure these are properly addressed.
This hangout will discuss current health disparity statistics, the road to health equity, proposed initiatives in addressing them, and existing resources to help minorities.
