The Duke Health Disparities Consortium (DHDC) is an interdisciplinary consortium of Duke faculty, staff and learners (students/residents/fellows) who are engaged/interested in health disparities work.

The DHDC serves as a central platform and repository to highlight current health disparities efforts across the institution and aims to increase the capacity and the synergies between our researchers, clinicians, educators, students, community partners and external academic partners resulting in greater cohesion, productivity and institutional impact on the reduction of health inequities.

The Consortium will actively pursue grant funding opportunities focused on Health Disparities and Health Equity.  Our collaborative partnerships and projects bring more deliberate and intentional focus to

  • reducing disparities
  • growing Under-represented Minorities (URM) in academic medicine
  • advancing health equity.
