Thank you for your interest in our program. Disparities in presentation, care, severity, and disability for neurological disorders such as stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy and Parkinson’s have been identified in U.S. minority populations. Addressing health disparities becomes critical when considering the cost and burden on society of unequal care and treatment of what will be more than 50% of our society by 2060. The goal of the Health Disparities in Neuroscience-related Disorders master’s program is to recruit students from diverse backgrounds into Health Disparities research program. The program builds on unique resources at Wake Forest University that make it an ideal institution for students to succeed.
