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.

“I’ve only been able to “attend” the webcast of these lectures. Yet, every year the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health Minority Health Conference webcast and its associated website have been among the most informative and useful events/resources I access during the year.”

-Alice Furumoto-Dawson, Jan. 2006
“The current topic is outstanding, as were the previous three broadcasts I attended. The annual Minority Health Conference is really a phenomenal undertaking, especially coming from an institution that has epitomized excellence in the teaching and practice of epidemiology in the US and beyond.”
-Anbesaw Selassie, Feb. 2008
