Ending Racial, Ethnic, and Cultural Disparities in American Health Care

“Excellent book – and a very important one. The timing could not be more perfect.”


-Luke Visconti, CEO, DiversityInc




“It is brilliant, timely, and very much needed by every leader in the US, especially the ACO leaders. I love the lessons you teach on disparities, the hope you give in how to close them, and the advice on how to move to population health management.”


-Maureen Bisognano, CEO, Institute for Healthcare Improvement




“Halvorson engages the problem of poor health among minorities in a straightforward manner, pulls no punches regarding the causes of those disparities, and offers sound guidance as to what can be done to eliminate them.”


-Arthur Kaplan, Head, Division of Medical Ethics, NYU Langone Medical Center




“Perhaps the most powerful part of the book to me is Kaiser Permanente’s racial/ethnic mix of patients (and employees). We can all learn from the KP experience, and it will surely be an early indicator of disparity issues that the rest of the country will face in the coming years.”


-Karen Davis, Eugene and Mildred Lipitz Professor in the Department of Health Policy and Management and director of the Roger C. Lipitz Center for Integrated Health Care at Johns Hopkins University, and president of The Commonwealth Fund from 1995 through 2012
