HELI is an intensive, weeklong career development opportunity. Dozens of researchers were selected through a competitive national application process to participate in this program.
This institute aims to help increase the number of minority researchers investigating health disparities and health equity, as well as facilitate professional networking for participating scholars.
In addition to the CCHE, HELI is also hosted by the Maryland Center for Health Equity in the School of Public Health at University of Maryland, College Park.
Reception speakers included Robert N. Golden, dean of UW-Madison’s School of Medicine and Public Health and vice chancellor for medical affairs; Patrick Sims, deputy vice chancellor for diversity and inclusion, vice provost and chief diversity officer at UW-Madison; and Mona Found, senior associate dean, diversity and inclusion at University of Alabama at Birmingham.
