In Oregon, members of underserved communities are more likely to be diagnosed with, and suffer disproportionately from, such chronic illnesses as asthma, diabetes, hypertension and HIV/AIDS and to die prematurely from these and other causes. These broad, persistent disparities are neither mysterious nor pre-ordained. They are driven by factors that include unconscious bias in our health care system. David R. Williams, Ph.D., M.P.H., will discuss the forces fueling such inequities and how to intervene, making Oregon – and America – healthier for all.
