FILE - Health and Human Services Assistant Secretary for Health Dr. Howard Koh is shown in this July 13, 2010 file photo taken at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building across from the White House in Washington. In a first-of-its-kind report, the government is recommending steps to reduce the disparities in health care between minority populations and white Americans. The plan being released Friday April 8, 2011 runs the gamut from improving dental care for poor children to tapping "promotoras," savvy community health workers who can help guide their Spanish-speaking neighbors in seeking treatment. But it acknowledges that giving everyone an equal shot at living a healthy life depends on far more than what happens inside a doctor's office _ or steps that federal health officials can take Koh said.
