The University of the Virgin Islands Caribbean Exploratory Research Center (CERC) will hold the 7th Annual Health Disparities Institute from Oct. 8 to 10, at the Marriott Frenchman’s Reef and Morning Star Beach Resort on St. Thomas. The theme is “A 20/20 Vision for Addressing and Eliminating Health Disparities in Special and Vulnerable Populations in the U.S. Virgin Islands and Beyond.” CERC Director and Principal Investigator Dr. Gloria Callwood invited researchers, program directors, healthcare providers and practitioners, policy makers and the wider community to attend. “We hope to motivate healthcare providers and all residents to take actions that will lead to a reduction and the eventual elimination of health disparities in our territory,” she said.
