ThinkProgress article: Author of ‘The Death Gap’ talks about health care inequities
Scientific racism and lack of access to quality health care hurts low-income families and people of color.
Although the Affordable Care Act has expanded health care access for millions of people, unequal access to treatment is still shortening the lives of many Americans. David Ansell, who has worked as a doctor in low-income Chicago communities for nearly four decades, focuses on these health care disparities in his new book, The Death Gap.
ThinkProgress interviewed Ansell on some of the health disparities he documents in his book, as well as possible solutions to these health care inequities.
