Minority Health Project
The Minority Health Project in the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health works to expand awareness and knowledge about health equity concerns, deepen understanding of methodological, theoretical, and practical issues in health disparities research and interventions, and strengthen linkages across diversity activities to increase their effectiveness and success.
Two of the project’s major annual activities are producing the National Health Equity Research Webcast (formerly the Annual Summer Public Health Research Videoconference on Minority Health) and assisting the Minority Student Caucus with the broadcast of its annual Minority Health Conference.
