Bridging the Gap of Health Disparities

Health Disparities

MUSC and the Department of Medicine are committed to the idea that everyone deserves high-quality health care. As one of the state’s only academic health systems, MUSC is committed to strengthening both quality of care and patient health outcomes, as well as addressing health disparities and public health issues.

In this year’s annual report, we focus on the accomplishments of the researchers and clinicians across the Department of Medicine’s 10 divisions who are leading the charge to identify and address health disparities to assure that every individual has the ability to achieve good health, regardless of race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, or other factors.

This work will ultimately bridge and eliminate health disparities gaps, leading to better health outcomes. With leading national experts in health disparities, we are well-positioned to lead the state and the country in addressing health disparities and help to create a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive health care landscape.
