action alert!
Minority groups continue to face a higher mortality rate in hospitals. This is a huge disparity that must be addressed in our nation’s efforts to reform health care.
Please sign the petition today! Tell Congress: Investigate Racial Disparities in Hospital Care

A study released by Jama Surgery revealed that the mortality rate for patients is much higher for minority patients. Several other reports found similar results, yet this major gap isn’t being addressed in Congress’ efforts to improve our healthcare system.

Tell Congress: please get serious about healthcare reform by investigating racial disparities in hospitals.

Excluding socioeconomic factors, hospital quality, and a patient’s medical history, the mortality rate was still significantly higher. Congress has the opportunity to improve the welfare of all Americans, and they must start with the conversation around racial disparities.
Send a message to Congress to investigate and address this crucial gap in hospital care.

Thank you for taking action,
