Blacks in Medicine
Clinical, Demographic,
and Socioeconomic Correlations


By Dr. Richard Allen Williams
M.D., FACC, FAHA, FACP


Recently published! ABC Founder Dr. Richard Allen Williams' new book, Blacks in Medicine: Clinical, Demographic, and Socioeconomic Correlations, is a socially conscious and culturally relevant book that explores the little-known history and present climate of Black people in the medical field. It reveals the deficiencies in the American healthcare structure that have contributed to the mismanagement of healthcare in the Black population, and examines cross-currents that intersect with the major events in minority medical history. Blacks in Medicine is written for a broad range of physicians and health providers, as well as professionals in the social sciences and public health.
