The Center for Investigations of Health and Education Disparities (CIHED)

Reducing the social and economic gaps in health and education

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.

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. CiHED seeks viable solutions to reduce these health, educational, and social and economical gaps in the United States. Please help us to achieve this goal by contributing with a donation.
