"We see Missouri African-Americans disproportionately burdened by disease and death when compared to Missouri whites," said Bernard Malone, director of the health department's division of chronic disease prevention and health promotion."Today, we call on African-American Missourians to recognize that they are at an increased risk for many diseases and to resolve to see a doctor in the coming weeks for a regular health checkup." Malone said that according to 2000 census data, 13.9 percent of black Missourians age 18 or older reported a cost barrier to health care in the past year, compared to 8.9 percent of white Missourians. Other statistics cited by Malone include: * One in four blacks reported having no source of ongoing health care. * Blacks are 35 percent more likely than whites to die from a stroke, heart disease or cancer * Twice as many black babies are born underweight than white babies.
