Overview

Disparities by race and ethnicity exist in both accessing preventative health care and health-related outcomes for Lincoln’s residents. Lincoln residents of color are less likely to have a primary care provider, which has been found to lead to lower likelihood of receiving routine preventative care, cancer screenings, diagnostic and preventative screening, diabetes care, and health counseling.

There are also disparities by race or ethnicity in the incidence of depression and poor mental health days, prenatal care and low birth weights, and injury-related deaths.
