There are many studies that reveal that blacks generally mistrust the healthcare system, receive a lower quality of care, and use fewer medical services in general than whites (Dayer-Berenson, 2014).

She also notices that there has been a decrease in the number of black/African American patients visiting the public health clinic, and when black/African American patients do show up to the clinic, they are reluctant to talk about their health care conditions.
