The Francis Howell school district, located in a suburb of St. Louis, MO, took action in response to the national outcry that followed the murder of George Floyd three years ago by passing a resolution to combat racial discrimination. This resolution was the start of an anti-racism program that has been implemented in the area. But has it been successful in reducing racism?Providing access to comprehensive preventive screening and treatment can help reduce and eliminate at least some racial inequities in health.
This is why the HERCULES mission was created to improve environmental health in the Atlanta metropolitan area. The Commitment Against Racism guides this mission and has been successful in decreasing prejudice against transgender people and increasing support for a law that would protect them from discrimination. In addition, programs such as scholarship and loan repayment programs, institutional resources, and outreach activities have been implemented to increase diversity and encourage underrepresented minorities (URM) to pursue careers in science and health. The Social Security program is an old age pension program that provides additional income for older people. The program in St. Louis, MO began in 2002 and reimbursed any uninsured Delaware resident with a family income of up to 250% of the poverty level for a colonoscopy.
This program has had significant improvements in activities of daily living (ADL) and independent activities of daily living (IADL), as well as a reduction in depressive symptoms. Reducing health inequities requires dismantling the systems that create and maintain inequities in a wide range of social institutions that are responsible for health inequities. The U. S. health system needs to commit decisively to reducing racial inequities in terms of health and apply all available tests systematically and sustainably. In conclusion, the anti-racism program implemented in St.
Louis, MO has been successful in reducing racism by providing access to comprehensive preventive screening and treatment, increasing support for laws protecting transgender people from discrimination, implementing programs to increase diversity, providing additional income for older people, and reducing health inequities.
