January 17th, 2022: A comprehensive report on Racism and Racial Inequities in Health for Massachusetts released

In December 2021, Blue Cross Blue Shield created a report titled “Racism and Racial Inequities in Health: A Data-Informed Primer on Health Disparities in Massachusetts”. An excerpt from the Executive Summary below:

“This primer was developed to serve as a foundational resource to broaden the collective understanding of racial and ethnic health inequities and disparities in the Commonwealth. It presents a data-informed reflection of the racial and ethnic health inequities and disparities Massachusetts residents confront today. The information given here is imperfect and incomplete, because the state and federal data resources available for exploring health inequities and disparities are imperfect and incomplete.”
