Experts will share data that tracks how race and ethnicity influences surgery survival rates and long term care quality measures. We’ll also learn about regional research called the “eight Americas” that shows how health outcomes are tied to race, place and economics. Our panelists will talk about what’s driving a 20-year-life expectancy gap between high-risk urban black males and Asian females. And we’ll explore how one program that’s tailored an organ transplant program to the Hispanic community has reduced disparities.
