Effect of an Antiracism Intervention on Racial Disparities in Time to Lung Cancer Surgery

Volume 40, No. 5, February 2022

Historically, Black patients experience longer delays to surgery than White patients and have lower survival rates. Antiracism interventions have shown benefits in reducing racial disparities in lung cancer treatment.
