The Kaiser Foundation has posted its June Update on Health Disparities which
includes summaries of news articles on efforts to recruit multi-racial donors for the National Marrow Donor Program, cultural factors contributing to disparities in treatment among lung-cancer patients, and a medical-legal partnership that helps patients overcome legal challenges that threaten the care of patients in the Washington, D.C., area. The monthly update synthesizes news coverage from hundreds of print and broadcast news sources related to health and health care issues that affect underserved and racial and ethnic communities as well as providing summaries of relevant journal articles and other research developments in the field.
You can sign up to receive the free report via email by visiting Kaiser's online subscription site and selecting the "Minority Health" topic within the kff.org Kaiser Update section.
