Goals

Addressing Gaps in Health Equity Research

Together, Drs. Safford and August will advance a robust research and outreach agenda informed by current gaps in health disparity assessments. These gaps include better understanding of disparities in heart disease, stroke, and cancer outcomes, as well as the role of policy, societal biases, healthcare providers, and the home and family environment in overcoming them. Community-based research efforts make clear that more information is needed about the most vulnerable groups and to better assess these groups’ most urgent needs for assistance. The Center’s research is vital in order to pursue and affect systemic progress in health equity.
