Description: This symposium, presented by the Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR) and the National Center on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NCMHD) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), hopes to expand our understanding of the economic implications of racial and ethnic health disparities in the U.S. and ultimately, to encourage research activities in this area. Papers by leading economists and policy analysts will be presented, each of which is directed toward estimating an aspect of the economic consequences of racial and ethnic health disparities. Presenters will include Kevin Murphy, Robert Topel, John Bound, David Meltzer, and José Escarce. We hope that this symposium will highlight the importance of eliminating disparities by attempting to estimate the likely enormous costs to society.
