Black Health Disparities
"My goal as a family physician is to add years of life, quality years that make great memories for my patients. I have seen the time taken and I know the barriers that take it." - Dr Harris
"Health disparities are preventable differences in the burden of disease, injury, violence, or opportunities to achieve optimal health that are experienced by socially disadvantaged populations."
"Social determinants of health are conditions in the environments in which people are born, live, learn, work, play, worship, and age that affect a wide range of health, functioning, and quality-of-life outcomes and risks.." - ODPHP
