 This session will identify the well-documented U.S. groups most disproportionately impacted by health disparities as well as the fiscal and scholarly practices that maintain such inequities. Attendees will learn to:

  •  Identify the well-documented U.S. groups most disproportionately impacted by health disparities;
  • Acknowledge the historically under-researched U.S. populations that include LGBTQ, Native American, immigrant, and disability communities; and
  • Describe the funding, policies, and priorities that maintain gaps in knowledge, practice, and research translation to eliminate health disparities.
