Community Engagement & Health Equity

The Community Engagement & Health Equity (CEHE) Core recognizes the importance of promoting health equity by addressing intractable social inequities that threaten the health of historically underserved groups. The core offers the following resources:

Educational Opportunities

These include support in identifying and accessing a variety of courses, seminars and trainings related to community engagement and health equity.

Consultative Services

We provide help for researchers looking to identify and engage with new community partners. We also provide help for community partners looking to collaborate with academic researchers to design and evaluate policies or practices related to diabetes and health equity.

Dissemination Activities 

We help support communication networks and processes, including multi-directional sharing of best practices and findings emanating from Chicago CDTR research teams, diabetes translation research networks in other parts of the U.S. and world, as well as conferences, journals and community events.
