  • We're on a mission...

    The Center for Health Disparities Research at the Medical University of South Carolina is focused on eliminating racial/ethnic, socioeconomic and rural/urban disparities in health.

  • We're striving for a healthier future...

    through excellence in all phases of our work and continually improving our programs and practices based on new knowledge.

  • We focus on translating research...

    to communities through development of health interventions that are effective and practical in the real world.


We cannot do our work without help from the community. Making changes is a group effort. We need many types of people to volunteer to take part in research. You can help us find solutions.

You can also help by taking care of yourself. Learn how to prevent and deal with common health problems with our guide to Your Health.

We also work with South Carolina Clinical and Translational Research (SCTR). See the SCTR community engagement newsletter for regular updates about health news and events.
