Health disparities and inequities continue to pose significant challenges in health care, disproportionately affecting marginalized and minoritized communities. HEAL-R seeks to address these disparities by creating an environment that values health equity research, supports investigators dedicated to advancing health equity, fosters innovative care delivery through community partnerships, and secures sustainable funding to drive impactful initiatives.
The mission of HEAL-R is to bring equity research to health care delivery, addressing critical health disparities that threaten marginalized and minoritized patients and the communities to which they belong.
HEAL-R’s vision is a society where health equity is realized, and all individuals have equal opportunities for optimal health and well-being.
We do this through our four pillars.
