We are honored to have you to visit our page to explore the exciting events that we have to offer now and for the future. We are known for the interest of improving and promoting health and to reduce morbidity and disability associated with specified chronic diseases.
The Center analyzes, understands, describes and thereby help to eliminate disparities in health and health care, especially those affecting minorities and other historically underserved populations worldwide.
We also address the health inequalities affecting minorities through innovative programs in:
