Min Hee Kim is a population health scholar and postdoctoral fellow at the UCSF Philip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies. Her overarching research seeks to bridge studies of social/environmental determinants of health and health service research to advance theoretical understanding of how health inequities are generated at the population level and inform policy and community-level interventions.
Her current research is organized around three lines of inquiry: 1) Examining the role of education policies for racial/ethnic integration and choice on health inequities among the US children and adults, 2) Understanding whether and how neighborhood disadvantage generates health inequities in a diverse population, including refugee population in Denmark, 3) Validating the measure of timely diagnosis of dementia and quantifying structural determinants (i.e., racial segregation and geographic distribution of health care resources) associated with racial disparities in delayed dementia diagnosis.
