Race, Biology, and Health Care: Reassessing a Relationship.
Byrd, W. Michael
Journal of Health Care for the Poor and Underserved, v1 n3 p278-96 Win 1990
Traces the history and underlying causes of health care discrimination and deprivation for Blacks compared with other Americans. This disparity is a result of policymakers' attempt to frame the problem in nonracial terms, physicians' attitudes, and scientific myths about Black inferiority. Calls for an elimination of institutional racism in health policy, health care delivery, and medical education. (CJS)
