Racial Disparities in Health Care: A Data-Driven Learning Guide The term health disparities refers to population-specific differences in the presence of disease, health outcomes, quality of health care, and access to health care services that exist across racial and ethnic groups.Over the last 50 years, African Americans and other minority groups have made significant economic and educational strides. But these advances have been tempered by continuing disparities in health and health care compared to Whites. Despite substantial policy efforts to the contrary, racial and ethnic minorities, especially African-Americans, often receive a lower quality of care and have worse outcomes.In this exercise, we will explore racial disparities in health and healthcare in the US, focusing on some of the barriers to access and quality healthcare.

Debt at these levels will threaten economic growth and the standard of living for all Americans.This simulation was designed to illustrate the tough budget choices that will have to be made and to promote a public dialogue on how we can set a sustainable fiscal course.
