WBUR reports on efforts by Black residents at Mass. General, Brigham and Women's and Boston Medical Center to boost both minority employment and do more about health disparities between white and minority patients.
The hospitals have sincerely been working on this problem for years. It is a top priority regardless of the headlines/press spin.
They are making progress, but there is far more progress to be made in reducing disparities in the upstream determinants of health: economic and housing discrimination, access to routine health care, ability to jog in a park without cops being called, etc.
i. e. racially, socioeconically, and ethnically, as well. More integrated housing would also go a long way towards ending such disparities in the determinants of health, economics, and housing discrimination.
