Program in Health Disparities Research

Minnesota is consistently ranked as one of the healthiest states in the nation. Despite the overall status of our state, minority and underserved populations experience disproportionately poor health and high rates of illness and death.
Our goal is to eliminate health inequities. We are a trans-disciplinary team developing, implementing, and evaluating cutting-edge solutions to eliminate health inequities through collaborative researchinnovative education, and trusted community partnership in Minnesota and beyond.
