Continued Seminar in Health Disparities

This is the second academic year of funding for this seminar. Our previous year goals will carry forward this year with some additions and improvements. We still aim to become acquainted with researchers and students who are involved in or interested in health disparities; to understand how to build and refine the Program in Health Disparities Research at the Sheps Center based on interaction with seminar attendees and their identified needs; and to provide a space for researchers and students to present (and solicit feedback) on past and current research to a group of peers.

The general theme of this academic year’s seminar is on the impact structures have on health disparities and practices for conducting health disparities research. All seminars will be virtual and will have accompanying information and resources provided through Sakai. Please register for the seminar here (
