Commitment to Solving Health Disparities

Long before the public health crisis posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, many communities faced steep barriers to health equity caused by systemic racism, income inequality and other social determinants of health. COVID-19 has compounded this crisis and laid bare the stark inequalities and health disparities that disproportionately affect communities of color and low-income communities. As a teaching program that prepares future public health leaders, we are committed to equipping our students with the knowledge and tools needed to dismantle the barriers and structures that negatively influence so much of our communities’ health and well-being.



"In the program we explored the different ways that institutions, employment, health insurance and health care systems breed health inequities and how to shift the conversations in health care toward addressing these issues. I’ve brought that knowledge to my organization’s equity and social justice committee, which works on promoting equity for both public health employees and the residents in our programs."
