for Health, the Office
of Minority Health, and the National
Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities at the National

Summit (also called the 2012 Health Disparities Summit).
The Summit involves a broad spectrum of the Federal government that seeks to eliminate
health disparities. The agenda will build on the momentum of the 2008 Summit and
the increased commitment of Federal agencies to improving the health of all Americans.
The 2012 Health Disparities Summit will focus on emerging science where it intersects
with practice and policy, and will highlight current national and international
trends in addressing the social determinants of health.
