Health Disparities Summer Series


This Summer Series will offer summer interns the opportunity to learn about health disparities, enhance their knowledge of gaps in health outcomes, explore the relationship between biomedical science and society in addressing the elimination of health disparities, and highlight the important role science communications play.

The Series will begin with an introduction to health disparities, which will provide an overview of the behavioral, social, and cultural factors related to individual and population health and health disparities throughout life. Weekly speaker-led seminars followed by journal club discussions in small groups will focus on health disparities in addiction, mental health, and sexual and gender minority health. Students will have the opportunity to discuss their questions with a topic expert(s) in breakout rooms. Throughout the series, students will be expected to participate in group projects, which will be presented at the end of the series.
