For the past two years, we have organized a session for University Research Week entitled “Advancing Health Equity Solutions at UNC”. These sessions were co-sponsored by the Gillings School, the Center for Health Equity Research and the Center for Health Equity Research and the Institute of African American Research. These sessions feature the work of leading campus health equity researchers. All are working towards developing solutions to reduce critical social and racial inequities.
