National Health Equity Research Webcast

NHERW logo

Each year, the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health, Office Of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs, Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute, and partners collaborate to highlight an emerging issue within health disparities through an interactive, live-streamed symposium that explores the intersection of health, policy, and diversity through expert panel discussions and a question-and-answer segment..

The annual live webcast is an interdisciplinary effort that builds on the expertise and support of UNC campus partners, community agencies, researchers and practitioners in health and education fields. The webcast appeals to organizations and individuals in North Carolina and across the nation with a focus on health equity, educational achievement and economic stabilization in all areas within our society.
