Health Disparities

Resources for students researching health disparities

Resources

Depending on the search tool that you are using (catalog, database, web search), you may need to search for multiple terms. Here are some terms to consider for both keyword and subject searching (remember that some databases have specific subject terms to use). Some are specific for African-Americans, some are more general.

  • African Americans
  • Blacks
  • "African Continental Ancestry Group"
  • "race factors"
  • racial
  • minority groups

Combine the above terms with terms like these:

  • disparities
  • "health status"
  • "quality of health care"
  • "health services accessibility"
  • "health equity"

or with terms that are disease/condition-specific (like diabetes, gout, etc.)
