Letter to the Editor - Health Disparities Research: Role for Undergraduate Students

In a study of The Philadelphia Negro (published in 1899) and in The Health and Physique of the Negro American (a 1906 volume), W.E.B. DuBois documented the differences in quality of health between African Americans and Caucasians (DuBois 1906 1899) during the 1900's. Today, health disparities continue to be a major public health problem.
