Similar to hypertension and the disparities among underrepresented minorities per Dr. Gottenborg’s post above, we have seen significant racial and socioeconomic disparities among those affected by COVID. In a viewpoint piece by Dr. Yancy in April 2020 (Yancy, doi:10.1001/jama.2020.6548), he brings these disparities to light and calls for a long-term action plan to address the social determinants of health that enable these disparities to persist. It seems that we as clinicians are aware of these disparities but lack concrete resources or approaches to addressing them. Does anyone in this discussion has any thoughts on creative, tangible steps that clinicians can employ to address this issue?
