Health Disparities Work Group

Health disparities research addresses the inequities in health conditions or in accessing quality health care among social groups within a population.

Most current research focuses on racial and ethnic disparities, but the theoretical and empirical models used can be applied to other types of social disparities, including those related to socioeconomic status, gender, sexual orientation, geographic location, disability, age and others.

Researchers in the School of Public Health take this broader view in health disparities. Our faculty and students are committed to reducing disparities through a variety of research, teaching and community outreach programs.
