Sparking Conversation to Enhance Health Equity Research
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, health disparities are preventable differences in the burden of disease, injury, violence, or opportunities to achieve optimal health that are experienced by socially disadvantaged populations. Racial and ethnic health disparities related to COVID-19 put many Black and Brown communities in an undesirable spotlight–unwilling recipients of disproportionate harm from the virus. Due to social drivers of health, including socioeconomic status, people who have been marginalized were found to be at greater risk for hospitalization. Research can assist in eliminating health disparities by: 1) informing disease prevention, health promotion, and care delivery efforts for specific subpopulations; and 2) translating effective tailored interventions in partnership with communities and other stakeholders for health prevention and treatment in subpopulations. This un-meeting will bring together researchers, clinicians, policymakers, public health professionals, healthcare innovators, influencers, and other interested groups to discuss and develop innovative and effective ideas to support and further develop health disparities research through clinical and translational science and beyond. Four (4) hours of Continuing Research Education Credit (CREC) are being pursued for this event.
