Structural racism, implicit bias and discrimination in health care settings factor into longstanding health disparities in the U.S. The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated these inequities in Black and Latinx/Hispanic communities in particular. This event will examine the broader context of race and racism in health services and care, seeking to identify ways to address the devastating impacts on racial/ethnic minority patients and communities. This Forum will draw on data from a national poll released in 2021 by The Commonwealth Fund and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and recently published in JAMA HealthForum. This poll was conducted to understand Black and Latino patients’ recent experiences with racism in health care.
