Health Disparities Research Collaborative

At HFHS, disparities research encompasses the study of potential cultural, biological, behavioral, social, environmental and medical contributors to racial and ethnic health disparities. The Health Disparities Research Collaborative (HDRC) provides a platform for the support and collaboration of Henry Ford Health System (HFHS) investigators working to understand these issues.

HDRC research targets US population groups traditionally classified according to the Office of Management and Budget categories, including African-Americans, Alaska Natives, Asian Americans, Hispanic/Latino Americans, and Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders. This focus not only benefits the increasingly diverse patient population at HFHS, but also supports and fosters the cutting-edge research that identifies HFHS as a national leader in the formulation of solutions to racial and ethnic health disparities.
