Save the Dates: Health Equity Leadership Institute is June 10-15
The Collaborative Center for Health Equity's third annual Health Equity Leadership Institute takes place June 10-15 at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
In partnership with the Maryland Center for Health Equity in the School of Public Health, University of Maryland College Park, the center offers an intensive weeklong "research boot camp" focused on increasing the number of investigators, particularly minority investigators, engaged in health disparities/health equity research that are successful in tenure track academic appointments in schools of public health, medicine and other health and behavioral health science disciplines, assisting them in achieving research funding through the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
Focus: Translational community-engaged health equity research and how the National Institutes of Health supports health disparity/health equity research.
Content: Presentations by health equity researchers from UW-Madison, other academic settings and NIH; visits to community partner research sites; tips for mentor selection and alignment, work/life balance, manuscript development and grant writing and mock study sections.
Format: Large and small group sessions designed to provide career guidance and professional network development opportunities to health equity investigators.
HELI scholars: Up to 30 scholars will be invited to attend. Applications from minority fellows, junior faculty or post doctorates in health, social and behavioral sciences addressing research in minority health, health disparities and health equity are especially encouraged. The Health Equity Leadership Institute program is free; limited support for travel and accommodations is available.
