History of the Health Equity Minor

10th Anniversary of the Health Equity Minor

The Health Equity Minor (HEM) is a graduate minor that allows students to specialize in studying health disparities and inequalities. A firm understanding of the structural factors that cause health inequalities will help prepare students to enter the professional world of public health as an effective advocate.

The minor is celebrating its 10th year anniversary this year! We are excited to show all the improvements and progress the minor has made over the past decade.

See below for enrollment trends and major milestones that have shaped the history of the minor for the past 10 years.
