Under Dr. Braithwaite’s leadership, the emphasis of the Center seeks to reduce health disparities in vulnerable African American families and communities.
This pilot study funding opportunity is intended to be useful for faculty interested in branching into other research areas or conducting research in compelling health disparities areas. The pilot research program is designed for new as well as established investigators.
Based on the CBPR approach there is a synergistic theme that ties together CEHD research projects with families in the Neighborhood Planning Units.
CEHD provides an internal organizational framework that transcends traditional boundaries of academic units to promote collaboration, synergy and coordination.
The CEHD seeks to increase the numbers of individuals trained to conduct health disparities research. This goal is consistent with the MSM Strategic Plan and evidenced by the numerous pipeline programs offered by the institution.
