Informing Policymakers About Racial and Ethnic Disparities in Health Care

×

In the fall of 2003, the congressionally mandated National Healthcare Disparities Report will be published. For this project, the Summit Health Institute for Research and Education, Inc., will inform key policymakers of the report's findings as well as findings from the Institute of Medicine's 2002 report, Unequal Treatment: Confronting Racial and Ethnic Disparities in Health Care, which stimulated little public discussion of solutions. The project will include dissemination of highlights from the two reports, press conferences, and a congressional briefing. The Summit Health Institute will also provide information and technical assistance to national advocacy organizations-expected to include the National Black Caucus of State Legislators, National Native American AIDS Prevention Center, Asian and Pacific Islanders American Health Forum, and National Hispanic Medical Association-which promote policies that address health disparities. These efforts will contribute to the development of concrete policy recommendations for the reduction of health care disparities in the United States.
