The high-tech medicine of the future may be biased in favor of well-off white men

Kadija Ferryman, Mikaela Pitcan

Coverage of the Data & Society report Fairness in Precision Medicine by Postdoctoral Scholar Kadija Ferryman and Researcher Mikaela Pitcan.

“Doctors hope this will make everyone healthier. But a new report by the Data & Society Research Institute in New York says certain groups in the US are in jeopardy of being worse off when medicine is tailor-made. The one group notably not at risk: white men who can afford health insurance and a decent lifestyle.”
