2012 Summit on the Science of Eliminating Health Disparities

Location:
Date: Wednesday, October 31, 2012 - Saturday, November 3, 2012
Time: -
Abstract:

The 2012 Science of Eliminating Health Disparities Summit is an HHS-wide endeavor involving a broad spectrum of the federal government that seeks to advance activities to eliminate health disparities. The agenda will build on the momentum of the 2008 Summit and the increased interest of federal agencies to demonstrate their commitment towards improving the health of all Americans. The 2012 Health Disparities Summit represents an ongoing focus on emerging science and its intersection with practice and policy, while maintaining momentum on current national and international trends in addressing the social determinants of health.

Summit Goals

The 2012 Science of Eliminating Health Disparities Summit is focused on Building a Healthier Global Society by Integrating Science, Practice, and Policy, and specifically aims to:

  • Provide scientific evidence to inform immediate policies and actions to confront health disparities issues facing regional, national and global societies
  • Provide the practical steps on how the scientific evidence for addressing health disparities could be translated into practice in different communities and global settings
  • Identify practical innovations in translational research to inform practice and policy
  • Gather recommendations on evidence-based science policy and practical objectives and measures that can be tracked for progress over the next ten years
  • Publish recommendations and findings that will contribute to the development of an integrated strategy for addressing national and global inequality
