Center for Health Disparities Solutions
Who We Are
The Hopkins Center for Health Disparities Solutions (HCHDS) brings together the health research and program development resources of the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutes (schools of Public Health, Medicine, and Nursing) to demonstrate the efficacy of public health, social science and medical science in mitigating health disparities. We do this through efforts in research, training and community outreach.
