Some populations, whether defined by race, ethnicity, immigrant status, disability, sex, gender, or geography, experience higher rates of certain diseases and more deaths and suffering from them compared with the general population.
Dr. Pérez-Stable will discuss his vision and plan to design a systematic health research initiative – national in scope – to reduce the profound disparity in health status of its racial and ethnic minorities, rural, low-income, and other underserved populations.
Dr. Pérez-Stable leads the nation’s health research, training and public education efforts to improve minority health and eliminate health disparities.
