What Is The Minority Health Network?
The Minority Health Network (MHNet) is a world wide web
based information source for individuals interested in the health
of minority groups. The authors of this homepage
understand that the term "minority" typically is one used in the
United States and lacking in many respects, but because of its
widespread use and in order to facilitate identification of this
web site, it will be preserved. Within the context of our
homepage, "minority" will be used to refer to all people of color
and people who are underrepresented economically and socially.
The Minority Health Network developed under the supervision
of Dr. Ronald E.
LaPorte and his work on the Global Health
Network. It was established in order to better serve the needs of
the populations described above, researchers, health care workers
and individuals interested in minority health. This homepage was
constructed by Emma JM
Carter-Nolan, doctoral students in the Department of
Epidemiology, Graduate School of Public Health, University of Pittsburgh.Pam
