Series evaluates the divide in health care access and outcomes for African Americans

    Does unfair treatment boost stress and anxiety among blacks? WHYY’s Health & Science reporter Taunya English discusses that today with 900AM-WURD as part of our ongoing In the Gap coverage.
    The series examines how discrimination affects health care outcomes and access for black patients. From the battle over menthol cigarettes to emotional well-being of those who face persistent discrimination, Taunya will take a deeper look into the gap and what’s being done to close it.
