This journal article addresses SDG 3 and 10 by discussing that nursing homes (NHs) end-of-life (EOL) care is suboptimal and NH health disparities are pervasive. This study found that racial/ethnic minority NH residents experience poorer EOL care compared with White NH residents, and particularly in NHs with larger proportions of Black residents.This systematic review has several implications for care provision and future research regarding NH EOL care for racial/ethnic minority residents.

This journal article advances SDG 10 by discussing that there is a long history in medicine of using healthy White men as the standard for normal, ascribing anything different as abnormal, other, or requiring adjustments. Although our understanding of and access to genetics has improved significantly in the past decades, our reliance on race as a proxy for genetic markers has not changed, suggesting that medicine as a profession, a system, and an institution has yet to erase racist ideologies acquired from the past.
