Advocates to Gov. Newsom: Racial Disparities Are a Public Health Crisis

Publisher: Sacramento Observer

Some health advocates are calling on Gov. Gavin Newsom to treat health inequity in California as a public health crisis –one that is complicated by racism. Their appeal to the governor comes as California state officials propose a $115 million investment in the state’s budget for the next fiscal year to address health disparities. If approved, some of the money would fund programs administered by community-based organizations.
