MHA CEO Brian PetersAs a healthcare community, eliminating health disparities is crucial to the MHA mission of advancing the health of individuals and communities. Implicit biases have a disproportionately negative impact on the health of people of color and are often deadly. The MHA supports implicit bias training for all healthcare workers as we ensure equitable access and care is provided to all patients. We’ve started this work through many of our MHA Keystone Center efforts on health equity, and it must continue. We look forward to working together with the administration and the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs to be a leader in our country in eliminating health disparities.
