This year, our theme Mental Health Integration: from Policy to Practice serves to explore how we improve communication and implementation of mental health integration across the health care system for all American communities particularly those that suffer disproportionately from untreated mental illness. Join us as experts from different arenas in mental health offer examples of integration strategies and other essential experiences that will strengthen health care policy and provide and inclusive framework for mental health within public health.

Welcome to the Reede Scholars website. You may use this site to stay informed about health disparities programs and events from the federal level to those at the local level.
The site is intended as a resource for alumni, community based organizations working toward improving the socioeconomic status and health of the underserved, and those interested in pursuing further training in minority health policy.
We are pleased to present this opportunity to explore the world of health disparities and minority health policy through the connections and networks formed by the alumni of the Commonwealth Fund Fellowship, the California Endowment Scholars and the Joseph L. Henry Oral Health Policy Fellowship programs at Harvard Medical School.
The website provides information regarding the three main programs, as well as other programs and events sponsored by the Office for Diversity and Community Partnership (DCP) at Harvard Medical School.
In addition, you will find information regarding upcoming and professional activities, along with the continued accomplishments of fellowship alumni.
We welcome you to use this site as a catalyst to change and a way to stay connected to others working on solving health disparities and giving a health policy voice to minorities.
Our hope is that it will evolve, over time, into one of many powerful tools to improve the health of underserved populations across the country.
