More about this program...

The Center for Reducing Health Disparities, established jointly by The MetroHealth System and Case Western Reserve University, seeks innovative pilot projects that partner with community organizations to better understand and/or reduce health disparities. Investigators from underrepresented groups are highly encouraged to apply. 

This pilot project aims to develop investigators with a high capacity to engage in partnerships with communities to conduct high-quality health disparities research. Community partnerships are intended to leverage the experience and understanding of the community in identifying the root causes of health disparities that adversely affect health. Investigations of interest include the development, pilot testing, and/or dissemination of community-based studies to understand and/or eliminate health disparities.
