About This Event

Presented by Leslie R. M. Hausmann, PhD, Associate Professor of Medicine, Division of General Internal Medicine.

 This session will provide an introduction to research on disparities in health and health care. Following a brief review of key terms and historical context, the session will orient participants to several conceptual models that have been developed to guide disparities research. The session will end with a discussion of publicly available data sources that participants can use to begin incorporating equity into their own research agendas.

Objectives include defining important terms in disparities research, and make important distinctions, such as social justice, differences vs. disparities, health vs. health care disparities, and marginalized populations, describing different conceptual models of health care disparities, and explaining where to find publicly available data sources that can be used to detect disparities in health and healthcare. Attendees should plan to join this interactive discussion on their computers and not by phone. (subject matter: scientist in society)
