Chicago—Countless studies have shown
that racial and ethnic minorities in the United States are at much higher
risk than whites for a number of serious health conditions, often even after
socioeconomic status is taken into account. In light of this enduring health
gap, the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is targeting $60.5
million to establish eight centers at academic institutions across the United
States to support research aimed at understanding and reducing differences
in health outcomes, access, and care.
