Remember:
"​
Groups of people differ in terms of disease incidence and prevalence, disease course, and health outcomes. 
Research in this area includes:

  • whether or not there are health disparities for a given condition for given groups of people
  • what those health disparities are and what impact they have on the group and/or society
  • what is causing those health disparities (genetics, environmental conditions, cultural conditions, access to medical care, differential treatment, etc.)
  • how identified health disparities can be eliminated (educational interventions, improved screening, etc.)

It's important to remember that many people are members of multiple groups affected by health disparities, such as a Latina who is underinsured living in an urban area a transgender teen living in a rural area."

Covid-19 for Health Sciences Researchers, Students, and Professionals

  • This guide is intended for health researchers, educators, clinicians, and students seeking various types of information about COVID-19 or novel coronavirus. We refrained from listing individual sources as a number of aggregate sources are quickly populating the Internet. Instead, we point you to types of aggregated resources based on the information you might need (e.g., dataset, meta-analysis, training resource, etc.). This guide is a collaborative effort of the Health Science Library and engineering liaison librarians for the health sciences disciplines.
