WesternU’s Pumerantz Lectureship Focuses on Health Equity
Date:10/25/2013

Pomona, CA (PRWEB) October 25, 2013

Attaining equity in health care requires improved access to care, a more diverse health care workforce and more responsible citizens doing their part to address the protection and enhancement of their own health.
