    Abstract

    A central feature of contemporary human societies is their increasing diversity. Differences in socioeconomic status, racial and ethnic background, education level, and occupation all intersect in complex ways to create disparities in health status. These disparities may stem from many factors, including accessibility of health care, increased risk of disease from occupational exposure, and increased risk of disease from underlying genetic, ethnic, or familial factors.
