This board explores racial and ethnic disparities in health and health care. Included are images from the notorious Tuskegee syphilis experiment. There are also graphs depicting the manifestations of more subtle forms of racial discrimination, such as those that illustrate average life expectancy, various disease rates, and other health outcomes by race. In terms of health care, the board surveys the enormous gaps observed in treatment and insurance coverage based on race.

In med school, I took an elective called "Stress," foolishly thinking I was going to learn about meditation and yoga. Instead the professor spent 6 weeks proving that being poor or a minority literally destroys your health on a molecular level, and I think about that every day. ~ @jfitzgeraldMD All Colleges, No Kidding, The More You Know, Faith In Humanity, Social Justice, Thought Provoking, Equality, Just In Case, Fun Facts
