Promoting health equity researchThe Center for Health Equity promotes health equity and minority health research at the University and the surrounding area through various seminars that engage the University and community.

In order to maximize these efforts, a strong emphasis is placed on integration and collaboration with new and existing minority health and health disparities programs, institutions, and resources at the University.

SeminarsThe Center for Health Equity has hosted and co-hosted a variety of seminars for professionals from all stages of the career trajectory who are interested in or who have worked in health equity research.

Our seminars range in content from, beginning stages of research development discussed in our Works in Progress (WIP) seminars to expert insight on pressing health equity topics discussed in our CHE Research Rounds (CHERR) and Distinguished Visiting Scholars (DVSS) series. The Center has also encouraged collaborations across the University by hosting periodic Building Bridges events.

Finally, CHE has encouraged collaboration between community and university researchers by providing a forum for discussion in our Community Dialogue Series.

Research supportOur monthly Works in Progress (WIP) seminars provide a platform for researchers to present current projects and receive feedback from other experts.

In addition, CHE has co-hosted workshops and training seminars for researchers such as the Write Winning Grants training held in January of 2015 and the Scientific Writing Series
