Center for Health Disparities Solutions
The Center for Health Disparities Solutions is dedicated to the elimination of disparities in health and health care among racial and ethnic populations, socioeconomic groups, and geopolitical categories such as urban, rural, and suburban populations. The Center conducts multi-disciplinary basic and translational research with the goals of advancing knowledge on the causes of health disparities and developing interventions to eliminate disparities.
The center is a collaboration between Johns Hopkins and Morgan State Universities, combining the facilities of the two Baltimore-based campuses.
Johns Hopkins facilities involved in the Center include The Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center, Health Services Research and Development Center, Welch Center for Prevention, Urban Health Institute, and the Biostatistics Center. Morgan State University resources associated with the new Center are The Drug Abuse Research Program, the Prevention Sciences Research Center, Public Health Program, the Programs in Social Work and Psychology, and the School of Computer, Mathematical, & Natural Sciences.
