HEALTH EQUITY INITIATIVES: We currently have a Comprehensive Research Center in Health Disparities whose goals are to:
1. Expand minority health and health disparities research activities by conducting interdisciplinary biomedical, clinical, behavioral, and community-based applied research that advances the understanding of the development and progression of HIV, Cardiovascular, Liver, Hypertension and Glomerular Disease and improves the diagnosis and treatment of these diseases in Hispanic, African American and other populations at risk for health disparities.
2. Support minority community-based efforts to disseminate research-based health information that highlights minority health issues and promote the participation of health disparity groups in biomedical and behavioral research, prevention, intervention, and dissemination activities.
3. Prepare new investigators, with a focus on underrepresented minorities, to conduct culturally relevant meritorious research in minority health and health disparities.
