What We Do In Health Equity
Our portfolio of programs is designed to grow future leaders in health equity, from our most junior of students to post-doctoral scholars, early career faculty at UW and elsewhere, and staff who contribute to health equity research!
Our team contributes to partnerships with a diverse array of offices, organizations and individuals who share our interests in:
- Addressing the causes and consequences of disparities in health and health outcomes;
- Improving the knowledge, skills and attitudes of healthcare providers and others who serve diverse patients and clients;
- Drawing and relying on the expertise of diverse stakeholders & much more!
Community-academic partnerships can provide unique collaborative teaching, student service learning and research opportunities to advance the health and wellness of underserved communities.
Our team members often broker community-campus partnerships around health equity issues; we ensure that the expertise and assets of both community and academic partners are recognized and integrated into partnerships happening in communities across the state.
Expertise & Resources
