2012 Health Disparities Summit
The broad theme for the 2012 Science of Eliminating Health Disparities Summit is “Building a Healthier Global Society”. The Summit builds on the momentum of the 2008 NIH Science of Eliminating Health Disparities Summit which presented a framework for understanding and eliminating health disparities. This framework stated that, in order to eliminate health disparities, we need to catalyze and promote intersections between science, practice, and policy.
At this 2012 Health Disparities Summit, the goal is to present progress to date, and identify opportunities and specific actions for implementation to build a healthier global society through the integration of social and environmental determinants of health.
