Disparities in Health in America: Working Toward Social Justice
July 24-30, 2004
Robert C. Hickey Auditorium 11th Floor, R. Lee Clark Clinic 1515 Holcombe Boulevard Houston, Texas
The goal of the workshop is to provide a comprehensive approach to the issue of health disparities. To provide the attendee with a broad base of knowledge so that they may address health disparities with a biopsychosocial approach.
After attending the conference, participants should be able to
? acquire introductory knowledge and experience related to the complex social, behavioral and medical determinants of populations? health, which will enable them to understand the origins of health disparities within a population and to conceptualize programs and policies to reduce and eliminate those disparities;
? examine and gain an understanding of the latest findings of specific research that demonstrate that there are wide disparities in health among certain populations;
? demonstrate awareness of factors that currently contribute to wide disparities in health among certain populations;
? identify the role of (various) health professionals in eliminating disparities;
? investigate community and state-level resources that can be mobilized for planning, policy development, program interpretation and funding for reduction of health disparities.
This program should be of interest to physicians, nurses, social workers, health educators, and other healthcare professionals, as well as active members of the community and community organizations.
This conference should be of value to undergraduate and graduate students, as well as pre- and post-doctoral fellows.
