Better late than never

I know this was from Thursday but on the other hand, since it took the AMA over 110 years to apologize for its racially biased policies, it should be ok for me to take three days to post about it. Good for you AMA and even better for you for your "attempts to increase the number of African-Americans who enter medical school, recruiting African-Americans and minorities for AMA membership, and addressing racial disparities in health care. " (Do not grammar police me here; that was a direct quote. Yell at the AMA or CNN if you must.)

The advocate in me is really happy that the AMA is doing this and the researcher/evaluator in me wants to learn what, if any, effects their efforts have had.
