Welcome to the
University of Illinois Chicago
HSAED (pronounced SHADE) stands for
Health Services to Advance Equity and Diversity
The HSAED Lab merges concepts and approaches from the health services and health psychology fields to further our understanding of how and why some socially defined groups are disproportionately affected by chronic conditions such as type 2 diabetes. The HSAED Lab focuses on the health of immigrants and people of color, and in particular, how multiple forms of discrimination, from interpersonal to structural, "get under the skin" to impact their health.
