Helping to Promote a More Equal Approach to Health Care

2008-11-01

Speaker: Lovell A. Jones, PhD

In this publication, one of the country's leaders in promoting healthcare equality explores the six lessons he says we need to learn to lessen and eliminate disparities in the way Americans gain access to medical care. Dr. Jones, a founding co-chair of the Intercultural Cancer Council, discusses why researchers must change the way they think about health care, how working with communities can bring fresh insights into serving diverse people and why we should approach health concerns by considering all of a person's medical needs, not just the most recent (or pressing) diagnosis. Learn about Dr. Jones's six key words: trust, respect, partnership, communication, flexibility and knowledge.
