New Research Shows Disparities Limiting Access to Healthcare Services, Including COVID-19 Vaccines, In Pennsylvania’s Underserved Communities
APR 2, 2021
A new report by AARP Pennsylvania and Drexel University’s College of Nursing and Health Professions highlights how geographic, racial/ethnic and economic factors are combining to restrict access to healthcare services for many Pennsylvanians, creating disparities that have become more pronounced during the COVID-19 pandemic.
AARP recently interviewed Andy Toy, community development and communications director of the Philadelphia-based Southeast Asian Mutual Assistance Association Coalition or, as it's commonly called, SEAMAAC. Toy has been involved in community work and looking for ways to make Philadelphia a more livable community.

AARP Pennsylvania Issues Statement Condemning Racially Motivated Hate Crimes Against Asian Americans, Pacific Islanders
AARP Pennsylvania State Director Bill Johnston-Walsh released the following statement in response to newly compiled data showing a spike last year—in some cases by triple digits—in anti-Asian hate crimes in 16 of the nation’s largest cities, including Philadelphia. The March 2 analysis comes from the Center for the Study of Hate & Extremism at California State University, San Bernardino, based on preliminary police data. The first spikes occurred in March and April 2020, according to the center’s report, coinciding with the rise in COVID-19 cases and negative stereotyping of Asian American & Pacific Islander (AAPI) community members generally, and Chinese Americans in particular. In addition, the report states that overall hate crimes fell last year, while hate crimes targeting AAPI community members dramatically increased.
Advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) are trained to diagnose and treat patients, but the state requires the oversight of a doctor for them to prescribe medicine. Nurse practitioners say finding a physician to enter into an agreement with can be difficult and cost as much as $1,000 a month in fees.
