    Social Justice : Healthcare Disparities and “Obamacare”

    in Current Events

    There was so much controversy about passing  “Obama-care”, officially known as The Affordable Care Act, but after all the dust has settled, there is no improvement in the health disparities between people of color in America and white Americans. Healthcare policies were written by those who were ill-equipped to address the issues that poor un-insured people face. Disparities occur in the quality of care received  (Care by Provider) even when income, health insurance and access to care are taken into account. Patients from racial and ethnic minorities often fare far worse than their white counterparts on a range of health indicators: life expectancy, infant mortality, prevalence of chronic diseases and insurance coverage, among others. We also know our health is influenced by more than what happens in a health care setting. Our health is in­flu­enced by the con­di­tions in which we live, where we work, where our chil­dren play (Care Needed due to Circumstances). Those so­cial de­term­in­ants of health play a sig­ni­fic­ant role in con­trib­ut­ing to health dis­par­it­ies.


    A year ago I attend a Pri-Med  conference in New York City which is a primary care (internal medicine) conference. There were all of the Northeast medical institutions represented with professors paid to teach the latest and greatest American Medical Association decision about  “ standard of care” in the land. There were holographic presentations from prestigious university medical school. The case study was of a 62 year old black American woman with diabetes, obesity, hypertension and early signs of cardiac and renal pathology. The panel's general attitude was that the patient “did not want to change her health status”.

    Cancer Health Disparities In The LGBT Community

    in Health

     
    It’s estimated there are over 1 million LGBT cancer survivors in the country today, and there’s reason to believe people in the LGBT community are carrying a disproportionate cancer burden. Health disparities in the LGBT community are caused by multiple factors that aren’t due to any physiological or genetic differences between lesbians and heterosexuals. Mark your calendars- my guest, Liz Margolies of The National LGBT Cancer Network will address the impact of stress, and the stigma of living with homophobia and discrimination that more than doubles the risk of lesbian’s developing cancer; to listen or comment call: 347-945-5853
