The prevalence of health and educational disparities among various ethnic and socioeconomic groups in the United States is both undeniable and unacceptably high. The mission of The Center for Investigations of Health and Educational Disparities (CIHED) is to promote and support research for a new understanding of the cultural, environmental, physical, behavioral, and biological causes that contribute to health and education disparities in America. These investigations are likely to result in practical interventions that will allow us to reduce the health and educational gaps between ethnic and socioeconomic groups in the United States, in particular within the San Diego area and the surrounding community.
Congratulations to Lindsay Henderson, a senior student in the Initiative for Maximizing Student Development (IMSD) program who was recognized for her outstanding poster presentation at the Society for the Advancement of Chicanos and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS) annual conference held October 3-6 in San Antonio, Texas. Henderson was recoginized in the Biological, Agricultural and Environmental Life Sciences category for her poster titled "A Live-Cell Reporter that Differentiates between Quiescent and Cycling Cells." Winners were chosen based on judges scores and the overall recommendation of judges in each subdiscipline category. Good job, Lindsay!
The existing health and educational disparities in the U.S. are not only serious social problems, but also major factors contributing to the decline of American competitiveness in the new global economic market.
