Tackling Health Inequity
Our 11 regional centers, one national coordinating center, and 27 partner institutions across the United States work collaboratively to ensure the greatest impact for today’s health inequity challenges.
Operating at the Intersections
Factors such as low income, limited access to healthcare, and discrimination contribute to poorer health. In addition, many chronic conditions create risk for others. Our research projects are focused on strategies to support individuals facing these complex problems.
Organized for Impact
Each Center supports cores to develop the best regional approaches for research, education, and community engagement. Members also collaborate nationally to share expertise, challenges, and solutions and importantly, to build networks.
Health inequity won’t be fixed in a laboratory. These projects focus on collaborative approaches for prevention and treatment of multiple chronic diseases.
The Investigator Development Cores provide guidance, education, skills-building, and funding to the next generation of researchers.
Community is at the center of all we do. The Community Engagement Cores work with local and regional partners to ensure that they have meaningful involvement in our projects.
