Much progress has been made in primary biliary cholangitis (PBC) research and education, but the impact of race on PBC care and outcomes is not fully understood. Some Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) patients with PBC describe experiences of not being seen and heard by their healthcare providers.
