A lack of meaningful representation of certain racial and ethnic minorities persists in many fields of medicine, including that of oncology, despite diversity’s association with (as stated by the Institute of Medicine) “improved access to care for racial and ethnic minority patients, greater patient choice and satisfaction, better patient-provider communication, and better educational experiences for all students while in training.” Explore the multiple initiatives that have been created to remedy inequities that impact health outcomes for minority groups—such as disparities in social determinants of health and access to a high-quality and ethnically diverse oncology workforce.
