Call for Contributions to the Prevention Institutes Paper for IOM’s Roundtable on Racial and Ethnic Health Disparities
Deadline: Ongoing

Prevention Institute is preparing a paper for the Institute of Medicine’s Roundtable on Racial and Ethnic Health Disparities. The paper will focus on what can be done to address inequities at the state, regional and local levels. Sharon Niryce Rodriguez from the Prevention Institute writes: “A specific point that we want to clearly articulate upfront in the paper is why health disparities matter to everyone and affects us all. We want to articulate this point in as compelling a way as possible. We wanted to tap in to all of your best thinking on this question and see how you have most successfully articulated this notion.  To stimulate your thinking, so far, we are categorizing the “case for addressing health disparities” into the following 3 main categories: 1. Moral Imperative; 2. Health Imperative (both from a public health perspective and a health systems perspective); 3. Economic Imperative. We welcome your compelling arguments that may or may not fit into these 3 sections.” Please email her at: [email protected]
