During the housing boom, Henry County, a suburb of Atlanta, had its share of racial tension as more and more blacks joined the tens of thousands of others pouring in, creating a standoffish gap between the newcomers and the county’s oldtimers. But the recession has begun to erase those differences. Blacks and whites have encountered one another in increasing numbers recently in the crowded waiting rooms of the welfare office and at the food pantry, where many of both races have ventured for the first time. Struggling black-owned businesses are attracting the attention of white patrons. Neighbors are commiserating across racial lines. More


Eliminating health disparities: What works?
Journal of the American Academy of Physician Assistants    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender patients face the compounded impact of decreased access to care coupled with clinician bias toward those LGBT patients who do receive medical attention. As noted by the widely respected Healthy People 2010 Companion Document for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Health, "… a significant barrier to LGBT people accessing needed care is the lack of provider LGBT competency and the discrimination toward people of other sexual orientation or gender identity that frequently is encountered in the health care system."

If you're managing tech-savvy, young employees who celebrate diversity and want the "fast track," you may have members of the "millennial generation" on your team.

Racism's health effects noted
The Age    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Racism and discrimination can come in many forms, according to young Somali Muslim Nawal Ali. She has felt it physically, as people yanked off her hijab in anger and fear, yelling derogatory names.

Joint Commission, HHS stress importance of health care communication
HealthLeaders Media    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Joint Commission and the Department of Health and Human Services released a 30-minute series of videos titled Improving Patient-Provider Communication. The videos, designed for organizations and health care providers, spell out what is required by The Joint Commission and by federal law in terms of effective communication and language access, and how the intent of the law can be met. Those hospitals that accept federal funding are required to comply with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits discrimination based on race, color or national origin. More

The Wall Street Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Big Brother is watching. That is the message corporations routinely send their employees about using e-mail. But recent cases have shown that employees sometimes have more privacy rights than they might expect when it comes to the corporate e-mail server.
