4th Annual HEEHD Flyer FINAL



The United States (U.S.) has one of the largest income-based health disparities in the world with poor minority populations with inequitable access to health care when compared to their wealthier counterparts and are more likely to report being dissatisfied with their most recent visit to the doctor. Furthermore, racial and ethnic health disparities adversely impact African Americans, Hispanics, and Native Americans at significantly higher rates than white populations in the U.S., which leads to preventable diseases and illnesses in minority populations.

Historical Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU)s & Minority Serving Institutions (MSI) (i.e., Hispanic Serving Institutions and Tribal Colleges) currently develop and have great potential to cooperatively increase sustainable biomedical & information technology (IT) related inventions and innovations that create 1) intellectual property (IP) (i.e., copyrights, patents, and trade-secrets) for MSIs; and 2) capabilities to tech-transfer their IP to minority companies that, subsequently, translate IP licenses into commercial products that directly address health disparities, enhance the economic status of MSIs and minority businesses, and create more U.S. high paying jobs for minority youth and adults. 

Hence, the 4th Annual HEEHD 2022 Virtual Conference will address, directly, the aforementioned disparities.
