Racism’s infection within American healthcare

The United States government needs to recognize how their mistakes and how systematic racism as a whole has ruptured the relationship between Americans of color and their nation’s healthcare system. Mending this relationship will require the development of a healthcare system that resonates with people of color and intends to atone for the wrongs of the past in order to show that the medical community is worthy of being trusted.
