Bottom line: even when things like socioeconomic status and health insurance are controlled for, there is still a huge gap in how whites and persons of color are cared for in the U.S.
Decreasing health disparities is a major strategic goal of the National Institute of Nursing Research! I just wrote that in my nursing history column on the Nursing Jobs.org Blog

It's a great place for nursing students (and I'm back in school for my BSN) to learn about what nursing research is and how it's funded!
