New Tool Breaks Down Health Gaps Among White and Black Missourians

A new tool breaks down health gaps among white and Black Missourians.

The Missouri Hospital Association has a new healthcare dashboard that shows Missouri’s Black residents are twice as likely as their white counterparts to be diagnosed with asthma and substance use disorder.

The dashboard says depression, anxiety, Alzheimer’s Disease, and Dementia are higher among white Missourians.

The rates of autism, heart failure, hypertension and stroke are virtually the same among the white and black population in Missouri.
