Ann Arbor Research Conferences
Vulnerable Populations Research Conference
October 22, 2004
Ann Arbor, Michigan
The eight papers presented at the 2004 Vulnerable Populations conference resulted from a special ERIU solicitation focused on health insurance coverage and selected vulnerable populations—racial and ethnic minorities, and immigrants. One other paper that focuses on coverage and persons with chronic mental illness will be included in the July 2005 Annual ERIU Research Conference. These projects generally employ economic frameworks and methods to investigate the causes and consequences of disparities in health insurance coverage for these vulnerable groups.
