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.
through excellence in all phases of our work and continually improving our programs and practices based on new knowledge.
to communities through development of health interventions that are effective and practical in the real world.
There are many opportunities to learn more about health disparities research, from the regular events that we host at MUSC to related conferences and seminars sponsored by other organizations.
The Charleston VA Health Equity and Rural Outreach Innovation Center (HEROIC) and MUSC Center for Health Disparities Research (CHDR) co-host Grand Rounds and discussions of Works in Progress through the traditional school year on MUSC’s campus in Charleston. There are also several other organizations that offer professional learning opportunities in health disparities research and related fields of study.
