This volume of collected essays is a product of the 2015 Minority Health Disparities Initiative writing retreat at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The goal of UNL’s MHDI is to disseminate and translate the research of affiliated university faculty to our community partners and organizations, as part of a larger goal to address the needs of minority and underserved populations throughout the Central Plains. These essays discuss ongoing research on discrimination and stress, obesity prevention in rural areas, human trafficking, Native American health promotion, the health impacts of bi- and multi-racial identity, and the emerging field of community health workers.
