In 2002, Congress established National Minority Health & Health Disparities Month in an effort to reduce health disparities and improve the health status of minority population. Medical advances and new technologies have provided people in America with the potential for longer healthier lives more than ever. However, persistent and well-documented health disparities exist between racial and ethnic populations and health equity remains elusive. For instance – infant mortality is more than twice as high for black infants as it is for white infants; more white women are diagnosed with cancer, but more Black women die from cancer; nearly 6 in 10 Latinos are uninsured compared to 2 in 10 whites; American Indian/Alaska natives have diabetes rates that are nearly 3 times the national rate, and Asian Americans have a higher liver cancer incidence and mortality rate as compared to the White population.
