Medical advances have preserved millions of lives. But not everyone has the same access to the latest in medical technology. Disparities in the way medical treatment is applied exist between races and ethnic groups. Studies suggest if those disparities could be eliminated, more lives could be saved than by any advance in medical science. We've been addressing those disparities with a series of programs on the ideastream stations. One of those trying to do something about the problem in our community is Dr. Amir Soas, president of the Harmony Foundation.
