Announcing the Summer 2019 Advancing Health Equity Pilot Awards

The Institute for Health Equity and Social Justice Research is committed to supporting work which advances the goals of health equity for diverse populations made vulnerable through marginalization and exclusion both locally and globally.    In addition, the Institute seeks to diversity the pool of research active faculty and support junior faculty as they develop their research profiles.

This is the second year of IHESJR supporting faculty through the pilot awards.  Faculty were awarded up to $5,000. Each grant recipient will serve as a Health Equity Faculty Scholar for the 2019/20 academic year.
