Health disparities are differences that are correlated to by gender, race and ethnicity,
education level, income level, disability, geographic location and/or
sexual orientation. Some health disparities are unavoidable, such as
health problems that are related to a persons genetic make-up,
others are potentially avoidable especially when related to factors
such as living in low-income neighborhoods or having unequal access
to medical care and information.
Access Excellence @ the National Health Museum is committed to addressing
the health issues related to health disparities.
