 This session will discuss how to move beyond the traditional disease-focused approach to   health disparities teaching and research to include an analysis of populations and interactions   among cross-cutting inequities. Attendees will learn to:

  •  Identify racism and poverty as structural social determinants of health;
  • Acknowledge how mass incarceration, historical trauma, and research abuse lead to disparate health outcomes; and
  • Describe evidence-based strategies to address the root causes of health disparities within pedagogy, research, and practice.
