America is a melting pot of diversity. Having the ability to meet people from any part of the world is one of America’s biggest assets and one that has made it into the country it is today. It is estimated that racial and ethnic minorities represent 28 percent of Americans, but according to a new study, these groups are not getting the same healthcare as their white counterparts.
It was found that African Americans with conditions that affect the brain, such as stroke and Parkinson’s disease, were more often treated in the emergency room rather than being looked after in routinely scheduled visits.
