Health Disparities

Health disparities are differences that are correlated to by gender, race and ethnicity, education level, income level, disability, geographic location and/or sexual orientation. Some health disparities are unavoidable, such as health problems that are related to a person’s genetic make-up, others are potentially avoidable — especially when related to factors such as living in low-income neighborhoods or having unequal access to medical care and information.

Access Excellence @ the National Health Museum is committed to addressing the health issues related to health disparities.
