Examining racial and ethnic disparities in health and hypertension control

Hypertension is a health issue that many people have to deal with during their day-to-day life. Studies show that racial minorities face more health complications due to their hypertension issues. Studies even show that 8,000 deaths can be prevented each year by trying to close and end the disparity gap between races of people in the United States of America’s Health Care System. The researchers who conducted these studies say that Black American’s health could be greatly improved by eliminating racial disparity.
