About the HDRC
To be a recognized leader in understanding both the mechanisms by which provider and patient-related factors contribute to health disparities and how health care systems can be the driving force in developing and implementing methods for their elimination.
The Health Disparities Research Collaborative (HDRC) provides a platform for the support and collaboration of Henry Ford Health System investigators working to understand racial and ethnic health disparities.
- Goal 1: HDRC will support research aimed at identifying and understanding the underlying causes and contributing factors to observed racial and ethnic disparities in health care and disease
- Goal 2: HDRC will support intervention studies aimed at eliminating racial disparities in health care and disease
- Goal 3: HDRC will consult with Henry Ford Health System providers and leaders in the translation of research findings into clinical practice and in the implementation of strategies to address and eliminate disparities.
- Goal 4: HDRC will act as a clearinghouse for research on racial and ethnic health disparities being conducted at Henry Ford Health System
