In 2010, the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD) launched the inaugural NIH Translational Health Disparities Course to provide a forum for preeminent scholars and faculty to discuss current and emerging health disparities issues defined by leading science, clinical practice and policy. A diverse faculty came from within the NIH, academia, industry and the community to share their knowledge and experiences relevant to health disparities research, intervention and policy. Scholars, who participated in the course, exhibited a strong commitment to health disparities as evidenced by their outstanding applications and letters of recommendation.

Dr. De La Rosa will be part of a distinguished group of faculty with diverse expertise in health disparities research to provide a forty-five minute lecture followed by a question and answer period.
