Dissemination

With the release of the Institute of Medicine’s landmark report Unequal Treatment: Confronting Racial and Ethnic Disparities in Heath Care in 2002 the issue of disparities has begun to move from the margin to the mainstream in the health care sector.  The DSC is pushing this movement to the next level by serving as a “change agent” for the elimination of racial/ethnic disparities in health care. The DSC will host conferences and web seminars and will conduct case studies of best practices, highlighting current initiatives to reduce racial and ethnic health disparities in health and health care. Through these mechanisms and others, the DSC will disseminate targeted practice and policy-relevant research and best practices, making practical solutions available to end-users nationally, regionally, and locally.
