GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV)-The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on disparities in health care treatment and access due to economic, social and racial inequalities in Michigan will be the focus of a virtual news conference on Thursday, June 25 at 10 a.m.
“Disrupt Disparities 2.0,” a collaboration between AARP Michigan and Public Sector Consultants, will be released at the news conference.
The in-depth report looks at the statistics and causes of disparities, and proposes solutions for a better Michigan. This project is based on the idea that everyone in Michigan should have access to quality healthcare and the long-term services and supports (LTSS) they need no matter their age, race, ethnicity, geographic location, or income.
