AP/Yahoo News, June 5, 2008
Reducing racial and regional disparities will be a major focus of a $300 million initiative to be announced by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The program targets 14 communities and regions around the country, and seeks to improve the quality of healthcare and eventually provide models for national health reform. Researchers say that one major goal of the project is to cut down on hospital admissions for certain medical conditions.
