Maureen Benjamins, PhD (Sinai Urban Health Institute) and Fernando De Maio, PhD (American Medical Association / DePaul University) will discuss key findings from the work, focusing on Black-white inequities in mortality, variability in inequities across cities, as well as variability in inequities across causes of death.
