≪Organizer Abstract≫
This symposium will explore programs, activities and policy initiatives of the American Psychological Association to address diversity issues in health care. Perspectives from education/training (on the competencies needed to develop a robust health profession), science (on research highlighting causes and sequelae of health disparities), practice (on models to increase access), public interest (on multiple interventions to reduce health care disparities) and advocacy (for funding and policy change) will be presented. Discussants from two national associations from different countries join to provide a broader perspective on how psychology addresses disparities from multiple international perspective.
