The W. Montague Cobb/National Medical Association (NMA) Health Institute (The Cobb Institute), a 501(c)(3) in Washington, DC, functions as a national consortium of scholars that engages in innovative research and knowledge dissemination for the reduction and elimination of racial and ethnic health disparities and racism in medicine. Solving one of our society’s most pressing problems, racial inequities in health, requires the collaborative work of public agencies, private entities, academic medical centers, and — equally important — communites. Founded in 2004, The Institute is named in honor of the late William Montague Cobb M.D., Ph.D. , physician, anthropologist, and a distinguished professor of medicine and anatomy. Dr. Cobb influenced countless graduates of Howard University School of Medicine, including Randall C. Morgan, Jr., M.D., M.B.A.who is an orthopedic surgeon and Founding Executive Director of The Cobb Institute.

Launching February 2021, this webinar series features experts who explore potential mechanisms and motivations underlying these differences. Identifying patient and healthcare system factors that may account for persistent racial disparities in cancer care is also a focus.
