Announcing the Summer 2020 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 third year of IHESJR supporting faculty through the pilot awards. Each grant recipient will serve as a Health Equity Faculty Scholar for the 2020/21 academic year.
