Health Equity Is the Superior Growth Model

A new study by researchers at Johns Hopkins puts a price tag on ignoring health inequities. Looking specifically at men’s health, they found that health inequities for African American and Hispanic men cost $448 billion in direct medical expenses and $115 to $318 billion in indirect costs to the economy. Improving access to care and boosting prevention for these men will build a healthier workforce and a stronger economy. Read more about the study here.
