2017 Health Disparities Research Symposium

This symposium is an opportunity to highlight faculty and trainee research on health disparities. UC San Francisco has a multitude of researchers with national and international reputations in disparities research and this symposium will provide a forum to showcase the breadth and depth of this work.

Registration is required to attend this event: 2017 HDRS Registration.


We welcome research from the diversity of disciplines at UC San Francisco, both quantitative and qualitative work and research studies based outside the United States if these studies address disparities by race and ethnicity or social class.

The goal is to build community among disparities researchers from many disciplines and across units, schools, and campus sites. We would like to gather together all the amazing and outstanding disparities research in order to showcase this fine work and inspire future direction.
