Center for Health Disparities & Molecular Medicine

CHDMM - Health Disparities Created by CHDMM - Health Disparities

Welcome to the Center for Health Disparities and Molecular Medicine (CHDMM). Each year medical and scientific advances offer new opportunities for the improvement of health for all Americans. Yet a disproportionate burden of diseases such as diabetes, stroke, cancer, and HIV/AIDS, continues among minority and medically underserved populations. Our faculty is engaged in innovative research that is needed to identify and understand the contributors to health disparities. These contributors may include biological, environmental, socioeconomic, or cultural factors.

Welcome to the Center for Health Disparities and Molecular Medicine (CHDMM). Each year medical and scientific advances offer new opportunities for the improvement of health for all Americans. Yet a disproportionate burden of diseases such as diabetes, stroke, cancer, and HIV/AIDS, continues among minority and medically underserved populations. Our faculty is engaged in innovative research that is needed to identify and understand the contributors to health disparities. These contributors may include biological, environmental, socioeconomic, or cultural factors.

The CHDMM houses research projects and student training programs funded primarily by the National Center on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NCMHD) and the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS). These two NIH initiatives provide synergy to implement a robust research and educational plan to eliminate health disparities.
