This one-day workshop provides an orientation to the value of interdisciplinary collaboration, challenges inherent in interdisciplinary work, and skills and resources that facilitate interdisciplinary success in population health science.

The workshop is open to scientists training and/or working in any field that contributes knowledge relevant to understanding the causes of health disparities at multiple levels of analysis (from the molecular to the societal and environmental) and/or the ways in which health disparities can be ameliorated. Students must have completed at least two years of post-baccalaureate training in a discipline.
