mission statement


The mission of the Center for Reducing Health Disparities is to promote the health and well-being of diverse communities by pursuing research, training, continuing education, technical assistance, information dissemination within a prevention, early intervention, and treatment framework that recognizes the unique cultural and linguistic contexts of these populations.

The Center for Reducing Health Disparities’ main goal is to create and foster an innovative research environment in which:

  1. New, scientific and practical understandings of health disparities can be achieved.
  2. The knowledge generated can be translated, shared (through education and training) and disseminated.
  3. New approaches to reducing these disparities can be developed for implementation throughout California and beyond.
