In 2002, the Institute of Medicine released its landmark report “Unequal Treatment: Confronting Racial and Ethnic Disparities in Health Care.” This report led to increased efforts in identifying, assessing, and documenting racial and ethnic disparities in health care, as well as developing, testing, and implementing interventions in an attempt to reduce health disparities throughout the United States. This article reviews the rise of health disparities research in the United States and reports on selected studies and interventions developed by researchers at the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. These interventions have used communication and behavioral science theories and frameworks in their development and dissemination, particularly in the realm of clinical preventive medicine.
