Health care delivery in the US is not equitable with respect to gender, race, or socioeconomic status. Laboratorians are uniquely educated and clinically prepared to play a role in identifying factors that may mediate health disparities. This session will discuss the disparities in pregnancy complications, infectious diseases, and lung function and will outline how laboratorians can develop diagnostic testing/patient algorithms for the prediction, management and/or prevention of diseases.
