Race to equity focuses on disparities in Madison’s latino community

In the Madison community, scientists want to further study the characteristics of Latino and Hispanics. There is an increase in poverty and unemployment rates in this group, which affects daily life and overall health. The goal is to have a better understanding of the Latino community. Many times people clump together African Americans and Latinos and compare them to White Americans, but this time, scientists want to separate these groups into 3 groups instead of two. By doing this, we can focus on each race instead of clumping them into groups. Finding out heart disease risks, kidney risks, diabetes possibilities, etc. are important to the Latino race just as much as the white American race itself.
