HAN member RUSH University System for Health was interviewed about health disparities in Chicago and Rush’s work to solve them within and beyond its hospital walls.
From the AMA Update interview:
Dr. Omar Lateef, president, RUSH University Medical Center: The only point I would accentuate on that is, this is a monumental challenge for an entire community. It’s not going to be solved by a health care institution. A health care institution is not going to solve racism as a public health crisis. It’s not going to solve inequity. It’s going to take the entire community working together, the entire ethos of all the different aspects of health care, to recognize this as a strategic priority.
