Health Disparities Current Projects

Healthcare Disparities at the Intersection of Race, Ethnicity, and Disability

This project is funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) and builds on Project Intersect: Addressing Health Disparities at the Intersection of Race, Ethnicity, and Disability. As part of Project Intersect, we hosted a national conference on health disparity research at the intersection of race, ethnicity, and disability. Through the AHRQ-funded project, we are now co-editing a special issue on the same topic for the journal Medical Care.
