For the past three years, we have organized a session for University Research Week entitled “Advancing Health Equity Solutions at UNC.” These sessions were co-sponsored by Research, Innovation and Global Solutions and Inclusive Excellence. Our partners for 2022 include the Center for Health Equity Research and the and the School of Social Work. These sessions feature the work of leading campus health equity researchers. All are working towards developing solutions to reduce critical social and racial inequities.
This award recognizes faculty who demonstrate excellence in research that has made a substantial impact on improved equitable outcomes or sustained reduction in inequities in a pressing public health issue.
