A Town Hall Conversation with ZERO’s Racial Disparities Task Force

Black man with a quote saying black men are more likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer

Black men are more likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer and to die from the disease than white men. Recent research suggests that these differences in health outcomes are likely caused by several factors within the U.S. healthcare system including access to care, insurance status, racial biases, and distrust in the medical system – it cannot be solely explained by genetic differences. Our Racial Disparities Task Force Co-Chairs, Robert Ginyard and Dr. Kelvin Moses were joined by ZERO’s Vice President of Health Equity, Dr. Reggie Tucker-Seeley to discuss the progress that has been made since the launch of the Task Force and the road map forward.
