Health Disparities in the Latino & African-American Communities

Rear Admiral Clara H. Cobb, R.N., M.S.N., FNP, Assistant Surgeon General Regional Health Administrator, Region 4 with Dr. Michelle A. Davis, Regional Health Administrator, Region 2 lectured for Fathers & Families Coalition of America on Health disparity as a particular type of health difference that is closely linked with social, economic, and/or environmental disadvantage. Health disparities adversely affect groups of people who have systematically experienced greater obstacles to health based on their racial or ethnic group; religion; socioeconomic status; gender; age; mental health; cognitive, sensory or physical disability; sexual orientation or gender identity; geographic location; or other characteristics historically linked to discrimination, racism or exclusion.
