The University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health is committed to improving the health of underserved communities in Wisconsin and beyond.
The Collaborative Center for Health Equity (CCHE) was created to engage partners in collaborative teaching, research, and service initiatives to improve health equity in Wisconsin. The Collaborative Center for Health Equity staff works closely with the Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR) staff engaged in its administrative, research, training and education, and community-academic partnership cores.
This collaboration allows for improved training opportunities for students, and creates an active and vibrant research community to attract faculty and staff with a strong interest in underserved populations.
Likewise, the Wisconsin Partnership Program provides community grant support to aid in attracting a diverse faculty to work with students in reducing health disparities.
The Native American Center for Health Professions (NACHP) aims to improve the health and wellness of American Indian people through education opportunities and faculty recruitment, retention and development.
