Health Disparities

Active collaborations with the Division of Preventive and Behavioral Medicine, the Department of Population and Quantitative Health Sciences,the Department of Family Medicine and Community Health, and the NIH funded Center for Health Equity Intervention Research (CHEIR) (www.cheir.org) contribute to this effort.

Select faculty members involved in health disparities research include Milagros Rosal, PhD, whose work includes evaluations of facilitators and barriers to mental healthcare utilization among low-income Latinos, and Jeroan Allison, MD, MScEpi, Principal Investigator of CHEIR, whose research focuses on quality measurement, implementation science, and statistical methodology, with an emphasis on eliminating racial/ethnic disparities in medical care and health outcomes.
