Poverty and Health Care: Getting Attention on the Web

Readers interested in the relationships between health care and poverty will want to read several new postings on the Web.

One is an article about my Rhoades Lecture (view slides here) given to  the Medical Society in Detroit. It’s entitled “Poverty and Health Care in America.”

Second is by James Marks, MD, MPH, Vice President of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, entitled “The Poor Feel Poorly.” It is posted on the Huffington Post site.

Third is “Health and Health Care in America’s Poorest City,” a tragic and dramatic portrayal of America’s failures to its own in Detroit.

Finally, here is a link to a collection of papers on social inequalities in health by the McArthur Network on SES and Health, published by the New York Academy of Sciences under the title, “Biology of Disadvantage.”
