TAKE THE MD NEWSLINE HEALTH EQUITY PLEDGE TODAY!
Health disparities are clearly documented throughout healthcare with minority patients consistently experiencing racism, higher death rates, lower treatment rates, and less access to quality care. In the Black community, there are roughly 73,030 cancer deaths each year and over 42,000 cancer deaths among Latino patients. Minority patients are also at higher risk of diabetes, heart failure, sickle cell disease, asthma prostate cancer, lung cancer, triple negative breast cancer, colon cancer, and more.
Among all ethnic groups in the United States, African-American males have the highest overall rate of mortality from cancer. MD Newsline is committed to improving patient outcomes for minority patients by helping to increase the cultural IQ of healthcare professionals treating minority patients and increasing access to valuable knowledge about cultural sensitivity and health disparities research.
We are asking you to join us in taking the MD Newsline Health Equity Pledge promoting cultural sensitivity as an avenue to decrease health disparities.
