Sheps Center: Transportation Equity, the Disabled, and Health Disparities

Tue. 27 Oct, 2020 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Interdisciplinary Seminar in Health Equity: Transportation Equity, the Disabled, and Health Disparities

This is the second academic year of funding for this seminar. The Sheps Center's previous year goals will carry forward this year with some additions and improvements. The Center still aims to become acquainted with researchers and students who are involved in or interested in health disparities; to understand how to build and refine the Program in Health Disparities Research at the Sheps Center based on interaction with seminar attendees and their identified needs; and to provide a space for researchers and students to present (and solicit feedback) on past and current research to a group of peers.

The general theme of this academic year’s seminar is on the impact structures have on health disparities.
