There has never been a time in our society when we have been as willing and open in our discussions around issues of racial and ethnic inequalities, discrimination, systemic racism, and socioeconomic disparities.
Within this dialogue on health inequalities, one soon comes to realize the strong interplay of bioethics, social justice, and systemic racism on health care and outcomes. Ethical questions pertaining to the rights of individual participants in research, criteria for inclusion and recruitment into studies, and the development of trusting relationships among communities, health systems, and governmental agencies continue to challenge us in achieving our goals of reducing health disparities and improving health care outcomes for our patients.
