Study Finds Black Children More Likely to Die Post-Surgery Than White Children


A research team from the University of Tennessee Health Science Center and Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital has published a study that found black children are more than twice as likely to die after surgery than white children. The team zeroed in on those findings after developing race-specific models to predict surgical outcomes. Their study is also set to be published in the February issue of the publication “Pediatrics.”
