STAT’s coverage of racism in medicine and science takes a deep dive into health inequities, patient care, medical education, and bias in research. STAT reporters are examining key questions, including why the U.S. has so few Black doctors and why progress on health equity in the U.S. has stalled for decades. Stories also highlight the clinicians and researchers who are fighting back against structural racism and changing how their fields look and operate.
