Health Disparities

The Pediatric Center for Community Health performs NIH-funded research concerning health disparities in children and youth related to obesity, HIV/AIDS, adolescent pregnancy, and youth violence. Our research addresses important and high prevalence health problems at local, national and international levels. In addition, we are NIH-and HRSA-funded to increase the number of individuals from minority and disadvantaged backgrounds entering health professions. Furthermore, our Program Project supports pilot grants for investigators beginning new initiatives related to health disparities. Please visit our Current and Prior Studies sections to find out more about our division-wide projects.
