10th Annual Health Disparities Summer Workshop

The Disparities in Health in America Workshop: Health in the Global Context is an educational program designed to provide the attendees with a comprehensive approach to the issue of health disparities and a broad knowledge base of the biopsychosocial approach in addressing health disparities in the United States.  This annual Summer Workshop hosts approximately 200 students every summer and provides three (3.0) Special Topics Elective academic credits to those who successfully complete the six-day workshop and meet individual institutional requirements.  This year marks the 10th anniversary of the health disparities Summer Workshop, and in celebration, the workshop will be featured as a component of the ICC’s Biennial Symposium.  Both events will take place in at the Hilton Americas Houston in the same week, with the Summer Workshop beginning one day before the Biennial Symposium, starting on Tuesday, June 26 through Sunday, July 1, 2012.

The health disparities Summer Workshop is coordinated by the Education Core of the Center for Health Equity & Evaluation Research, a joint entity between the University of Houston and The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.  For additional information on the 2012 Annual Summer Workshop, please contact icc-students@mdanderson.org.
