In Eliminating Healthcare Disparities in America:
Beyond the IOM Report, Richard A. Williams has assembled a fine collection of articles that thoughtfully address the issue of health care disparities in the aftermath of the Institute of Medicine (IOM) report, Unequal Treatment. I recommend the book to experts and novices interested in the topic. The book is divided into 5 sections: (1) a primer on the underlying causes of health care disparities, (2) a discussion of current problems,
(3) chapters discussing different approaches to health care disparities,
(4) chapters highlighting programs that work, and (5) a chapter offering guiding principles for eliminating health care disparities.
