October 26, 2020Black women in the U.S. are two to three times more likely to die during or following childbirth than white women. And although Black women are about as likely to be diagnosed with breast cancer as their white counterparts, they’re almost 40% more likely to die from it. Why is this the case in 2020? In this episode of the Business Group on Health podcast, we speak with Dr. Montgomery Rice about the state of health disparities in the U.S., and what steps we can take, especially in this moment of enhanced awareness and forward momentum, to ensure an equitable and healthy future.
