MINORITY HEALTH DISPARITIES INITIATIVE COMMUNITY IMPACT TRANSLATING TRANSDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH INTO BROAD SOCIAL IMPACTLOOKING PAST SKIN
Developing long-term sustainable collaborations with communities that strengthen efforts to produce measurable impact on the health disparities affecting people across Nebraska and the Great Plains.
OUR COMMUNITY IMPACT MISSION
The Minority Health Disparities Initiative's Community Impact (MHDI CI) engages stakeholders to identify critical knowledge and service gaps in rural community health disparities. Our team works directly with communities and researchers to develop collaborative research teams. Together we build innovative CI projects that address these identified gaps. Our mixed-methods approach combines social science quantitative research strategies with Community Based Participatory Research and facilitates community relationship building for health disparities researchers who seek to have a social impact on the communities that their research serves.
