Abstract

Over the last 40 years, Maryland and the entire country have seen groundbreaking advances in the fields of medicine and health care. We have developed life-sustaining treatments for previously fatal diseases, including many types of cancer, HIV, and heart disease. Life expectancy has climbed, and infant mortality has fallen. But these successes are not enough. They are not enough when so many of our accomplishments in health are shadowed by unacceptable disparities.
