Module 3: Root Causes of Health Disparities
This module will discuss how to move beyond the traditional disease-focused approach to health disparities teaching and research to include an analysis of populations and interactions among cross-cutting inequities.
This continuing medical education activity was developed for healthcare professionals committed to improving quality and reducing health disparities.
Upon conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:
- Identify racism and poverty as structural social determinants of health;
- Acknowledge how mass incarceration, historical trauma, and research abuse lead to disparate health outcomes; and
- Describe evidence-based strategies to address the root causes of health disparities within pedagogy, research, and practice.
