Applied Research Center (2006) New England Journal of Medicine Faces Challenge from Health Experts Researchers, Advocates and Lawmakers Question Study that Minimizes Race-Based Health Disparities. Press Release. UNSPECIFIED.
Today a broad assortment of health advocates, federal legislators and prominent researchers delivered a letter to the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine challenging a Rand Corporation study asserting that patients receive comparable medical care and treatment regardless of race or ethnicity. The study, “Who is at Greatest Risk for Receiving Poor- Quality Health Care?" found that women and people of color actually fare better than their white and male counterparts attempting to access quality care and treatment. The coalition of critics cited more than 600 peer-reviewed studies that contradict the study‘s findings and urged the journal to take seriously race-based disparities in healthcare.
