PHARMACISTS: Leaving this Public Health Workforce

By NIHCM Foundation

This infographic takes a close look at the pharmacist workforce and its role in the COVID-19 response.

Pharmacists are trusted and accessible, with 90% of Americans living within five miles of a pharmacy. They are well-positioned to address vaccine hesitancy and ensure equitable COVID-19 vaccine distribution and access. Leveraging and supporting pharmacists could help address public health priorities both during and after the corona virus pandemic.

Could ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE Help Make Health Care More Fair?

Helping us believe what patients say

A new study shows how training deep-learning models on patient outcomes could help reveal gaps in existing medical knowledge.

By Karen Hao

In the last few years, research has shown that deep learning can match expert-level performance in medical imaging tasks like early cancer detection and eye disease diagnosis. But there’s also cause for caution.

Other research has shown that deep learning has a tendency to perpetuate discrimination. With a health-care system already riddled with disparities, sloppy applications of deep learning could make that worse.
