CCHE Associate Director Angela Byars-Winston, PhD, is a Visiting Fellow with the Maryland Center for Health Equity’s Disparity Populations and Community Health Equity Leadership Program (HELP) this summer!
The HELP fellowship program aims to expand the pool of well-prepared, competent candidates from underrepresented racial/ethnic groups to lead academic public health research centers across the nation. During her time as a HELP fellow, Dr. Byars-Winston will conduct targeted networking activities with local leaders engaged in scientific workforce development. She will also engage in mentoring activities to build skills in leveraging center and campus-level buy-in for institutional transformation efforts towards culturally inclusive research training environments as she prepares to lead a nationwide NIH-funded study on this topic.
Dr. Byars-Winston will return to Madison in early August.
