The program facilitates Harvard-wide research on health disparities through research and methods seminars, personalized consultations, networking events, and transdisciplinary symposia. The program also provides training and mentorship for junior faculty, fellows, and students interested in health disparities research. The Health Disparities Research Program works to increase the local and national impact of health disparities research by creating collaborations with local and national clinical and translational science centers and community partners.
