How To Improve Healthcare For Blacks In South Florida
WLRN Miami, South Florida. By Rachel Morello. A panel of the area’s top medical professionals gathered Tuesday to discuss the state of healthcare for blacks in South Florida. The discussion, hosted by Legacy Magazine, addressed medical issues affecting African-Americans, who make up nearly a quarter of the South Florida population.
Mark Kent is chief executive officer of the CAC-Florida Medical Centers. He says increased patient education would greatly improve the state of black health care in South Florida communities.
“The state of black healthcare in America is abysmal, but its abysmal because we’re not questioning it,” Kent says. “Part of our overall issue is that we don’t educate ourselves enough before arriving to the appointment. There is a great need to educate and empower.”
