While racial and ethnic disparities are now being closely examined by policy makers, they were ignored for many years, said commission member Brian Gibbs, director of the Program to Eliminate Health Disparities at Harvard School of Public Health.

The problem was raised in 1985 by the Heckler report on black and minority health, but little was done to solve it, he said.
"The overwhelming majority in the health care field not only ignored it, but even if they could pay attention to it, would not have known what to do about it," Gibbs said. "It's very difficult for the medical profession to police itself, when most of the people say 'It's not me.'"
Gibbs said he believes the Massachusetts commission to eliminate disparities is the first in the country to be formed by state policy makers, as opposed to private foundations.
