Health Equity Footprint

The Center for Health Equity Transformation has collected information from Northwestern faculty to highlight the depth and breadth of their health equity-related work, programming, and research. This "Health Equity Footprint" is an online catalog intended to raise visibility and collaboration among Northwestern scholars, trainees, students, community members, and other interested stakeholders to help catalyze further work that lifts health for all. This catalog may also help students, trainees, and researchers identify potential mentors and collaborators with shared experiences or research interests.

If you are interested in being added to the Health Equity Footprint, please take 10-15 minutes to complete this survey. If you have already opted in but would like to modify your information or if you have any questions, please email Araceli Estrada at
