MISSION: To lift health for all by exposing root causes of health inequities and serving as a hub that pushes boundaries in research, education, workforce development, and community engagement.
Building Scientific Capacity for Health Equity Research
Shaping health equity by building scientific capacity for health equity research at Northwestern University.
We aim to create more collaborative grants and research projects that are focused on health equity at IPHAM, the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University, Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern Medicine and the university as a whole.
Transforming Workforce Development
Shaping health equity by transforming workforce development.
This would include connecting existing training programs across the entire Northwestern community to integrate health equity education and research opportunities and to build more programs across the healthcare career pipeline, with emphasis on early entry to healthcare and research careers.
Supporting Community Partners
Shaping health equity by supporting the momentum of community partners.
We aim to synergize with the many ongoing efforts across the university and lift the contribution and connectivity of Northwestern as a whole to the communities we serve.
The Center for Health Equity Transformation is a joint center between the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University and the Institute for Public Health and Medicine.
