Research In Health Disparities

Research

We conduct research at the Hopkins Center for Health Disparities Solutions across a continuum ranging from exploratory studies to community and clinical interventions. The primary activity of our research is to conduct a large scale collaborative study of determinants of disparities in chronic conditions, entitled "Exploring Health Disparities in Integrated Communities: The EHDIC Study." Progress in understanding the nature of health disparities requires data that are race-comparative while overcoming confounding between race, socioeconomic status (SES) and segregation. The EHDIC Study is a multi-site cohort study that addresses these co-founders by examining the nature of health disparities within racially integrated communities without racial disparities in SES.
