Health Equity studies

We conduct a broad range of research in racial and ethnic health equity to help ensure equal and better care for our members. Studies have focused on learning the sources of disparities in health outcomes, assessing inequities in cancer screening, treatment, and outcomes, and assessing leadership efforts to improve care and services for patients with diverse backgrounds and language needs.
