Description: Health care disparities exist for many medical conditions, including neurologic disorders, across gender, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, culture, region, and other communities. Disparities in disease incidence rates and patient outcomes for neurologic conditions are likely driven by variations in socioeconomic, educational attainment, geographic access to care, implicit and explicit biases, and other differences between the diverse stakeholders (patient, provider, insurance carriers, government, etc.) of health care. Addressing disparities is critical as the AAN seeks to promote the high-quality, patient-centered neurologic care for an increasingly diverse and aging population.
