Minority Student Caucus: Minority Health Conference 2003
The Evolution of Health Policy: Influences, Interpretations and Implications
25th Annual Minority Health Conference and the
5th Annual William T. Small Jr. Keynote Lecture
February 28, 2003
Health policy is both the starting point and outcome of public health work, and plays a major role in the fight to reduce racial/ethnic health disparities. These policies affect the conduct of research, the development of interventions, and the provision of care. However, health policy decisions are often influenced by political, social, and/or economic realities. The goal of this conference is to explore the development and implementation of health policy as it relates to minority populations.
