About IHDR

At the Institute for Health Disparities Research (IHDR), we do research, scholarship, and enact health promotion ultimately devoted to to solving various forms of social inequities in health and health care provision in the United States, with a central focus on South Texas. We aim to do this working with community, government, and academic partners to: rigorously documenting different types of disparities -to identify problems- or their absence -to find areas of promise; doing research that integrates biomedical and social determinants of health -to understand the fundamental causes of disease and healthy life; and by translating research into evidence-based, programs and practices that promote health.

We seek to involve graduate and undergraduate students in our projects and are often open to providing internship opportunities as part of this. Contact us if you’re interested in helping to work toward health equity for all.
