Health Equity

Inclusion and equity in health research

The Health Equity core provides guidance for designing and disseminating research that reduces health disparities and works towards positive health outcomes for all members of society. We provide research development services and support community partnerships that promote health equity.

Research Development

Working in tandem with the research development team, we partner with health researchers to strategically plan and develop proposals and to lower grant-seeking barriers through support services and training. IHSI research development professionals have diverse scientific backgrounds and experience developing research and programs that advance health equity.

Community Engagement

The Health Equity team joins researchers, students, community organizations, health systems, industry partners, and community members in addressing health disparities through programs, partnerships, and public policy. We work closely with the Community-Academic Partnerships team to promote equitable and inclusive collaborations.
