Health equity is achieved when every person has the opportunity to attain his/her/their full health potential.
Our African American/Black, Asian American, and Hispanic American communities continue to be at increased risk of developing or dying from particular diseases. We have the power to change this.
Representation matters and every voice matters. Culturally competent educational resources and diversity in clinical trials is critical to reducing health disparities and improving outcomes.
Black/African American men are 2 times as likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer and twice as likely to die from it.
Asian Americans are 7 to 10 times more likely to be diagnosed with head and neck cancer compared to the non-Hispanic White population.
Hispanic Americans are 2.5 times more likely than the non-Hispanic White population to have liver cancer, of which 60% is advanced liver cancer and cannot be cured.
Our outreach initiatives are focused on African American/Black, Hispanic, Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese communities.
Unconscious bias, cultural norms, and social barriers play a role in each person’s health care journey and may affect critical health decisions, outcomes and access to information.
We strive to understand and address these barriers by actively engaging our communities and the health care professionals who serve them. We must all use our voices and work together to end health disparities – join our network of partners.
