Addressing the complex issues of contemporary biomedical sciences requires the engagement of diverse perspectives. Fulfilling our mission of creating and applying science and discoveries to further education, healthcare and community service locally and globally demands that we harness the full and varied intellectual capital of our city, our country and our world.
Training a diverse cadre of professionals to address scientific research through the lenses of their unique perspectives and histories opens new pathways to exploration.
Many Baylor College of Medicine led research initiatives address topics of critical importance to underserved populations including healthcare disparities, cultural competence in medicine and education, nutrition and quality of healthcare delivery in different settings. A sampling of these programs include:
- Dan L Duncan Comprehensive Cancer Center Office of Outreach and Health Disparities
- Texas Regional Mental Health Minority Mentor Network
- Children’s Nutrition Resource Center
- Center for Medical Ethics and Health Policy
- Center for Innovations in Quality, Effectiveness and Safety
