HUMMER Population Research Center and Department of Sociology, University of Texas at Austin Health disparities are at the heart of the nation’s public policy agenda.

There are conferences that are speciﬁcally devoted to health disparities, funding mechanisms geared toward research on health disparities, and academic programs and even departments that are built around researching and teaching about health disparities. In short, academic and public policy interest is very strong.
