Academic Programs Take on Challenge of Eliminating Ethnic Health Disparities

Twelve schools and graduate programs of public health have been selected to work collaboratively with Community-Campus Partnerships for Health (CCPH), a grantee of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, to develop and implement strategic action plans focused on eliminating racial and ethnic health disparities. Despite major advances in health care and health status in the 21st century, disparities persist between whites and people of color. Eliminating these disparities will require collaborative solutions that bring communities and institutions together as partners. Schools and graduate programs of public health – with their roles in educating public health professionals, conducting public health research and applying knowledge to solve public health problems – have a unique and important role to play. For a complete list of the 12 schools, initiative announcements, and updates, visit CCPH.
