Research

The Center for Health Equity Transformation prioritizes research with an overarching goal of advancing health equity so that every person has an equal opportunity to achieving the optimal health they can enjoy. We strive to reach this goal with investigations that focus on diverse underserved and underrepresented populations, paying particular attention to the attainment of cancer health equity through community-based participatory research.

Our research expertise currently spans the areas of cancer equity, diversity in clinical trials, education and training, healthy aging, patient navigation, quality improvement and women’s health.
