Abstract

The age of modern medicine has ushered in remarkable advances and with them increased longevity of life. The questions are, however: Has everyone benefited from these developments equally? and Do all lives truly matter? The presence of gender and racial health disparities indicates that there is work still left to be done. The first target of intervention may well be the medical establishment itself. The literature presented in this article identifies potential targets for interventions and future areas of exploration.
