Large health disparities persist between Black and white Americans. The National Academy of Medicine released a comprehensive study concluding poverty cannot account for the fact that Black people are sicker and have shorter life spans than their white counterparts. Many factors likely contribute to the increased morbidity and mortality among Black people. One of those factors is the care that they receive from their providers. Black people are not receiving the same quality of healthcare that their white counterparts receive, and it is shortening their lives.
