The 19-member committee will review the state of health disparities in the U.S. and examine community-based solutions that address health inequities. In its final report, which is tentatively scheduled to be released at the end of 2016, the committee will recommend short- and long-term strategies and solutions for communities to expand and advance health equity, and will recommend key research needs to identify and strengthen evidence-based solutions that will reduce health disparities.
