There is growing consensus on the role of historical and structural racisms in the pervasive disparities in health that exist in the United States. African Americans and Native Americans are two groups that have been most affected by structural racism resulting in consistent disparities in health outcomes. Recent attention has shifted to reparations as part of the solution to address structural racism and resulting health disparities. The members of this panel will discuss potential strategies for reparation and the role reparation can play in reducing the health gap.
