Race and ethnicity and socioeconomics are high and heinous risky punitive pawns in game of life and health care relative to underlying conditions that impact health. Long-standing systemic health and social inequities open the door and maintain a breeze of devastating consequences putting many people from racial and ethnic minority groups at increased risk of getting sick and dying from COVID-19.

Equally important but some experiences are common to many people within these groups (heart disease, dementia, alzheimers, diabetes, stroke, etc.).
