Healthcare Disparities in America: President Obama’s healthcare bill has finally been passed — but for minority Americans, our nation still isn’t even close to resolving healthcare inequality.
Hear about healthcare disparities across oft-overlooked minority communities in this lecture by Dr. Maria Lee, Medical Director of the Chelsea Village Program, affiliated with the Department of Community Medicine at St. Vincent’s Hospital Manhattan.
Dr. Lee will address topics on healthcare disparities in America, drawing from her research on hospice underutilization among Chinese and Latino patients in New York City, as well as her experience as a physician serving the diverse communities in the city.
The lecture is an APIA Heritage Month event sponsored by SAO, Swarthmore Pre-Health Society, FFS, the Intercultural Center, and Career Services.
