Summary A Cleveland Plain Dealer investigation of the racial gap in the health of American men and women revealed that "black Americans die at higher rates than whites in virtually every county in the United States where there's a sizable minority population." Among the Dealer's findings in the county-by-county investigation was that the "death rates among blacks for certain treatable diseases are where they were for whites 20 years ago." The five-part series looks at individual cities in the United States as well as offers some solutions to the national trend.
