Health Disparities in Neuroscience-related Disorders
Health Disparities in Neuroscience-related Disorders (HDND) MS Program
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.
