Dwight Evans’ New Bill Would Help Cut Health Disparities

Congressman Dwight Evans (D-PA) has introduced the Health Communities Act of 2018, a bill which will help cut down on the amount of health disparities and ensure that research is balanced and more effective by requiring the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force to base its recommendations on health disparity populations.
