The Cornell Center for Health Equity (CCHEq) responds directly to community priorities by focusing on practical, relevant research topics. It brings together research experts at Weill Cornell Medicine and at Cornell University’s Ithaca campus to collaborate on how to achieve health equity. The Center engages members of the public in every step of the research process, from conceptualization through dissemination and implementation.
Drawing on resources and expertise at Weill Cornell Medicine and Cornell University, the Center advances Cornell’s efforts to discover, preserve and disseminate knowledge and to enhance lives in New York state and beyond.
If you are a researcher interested in multiple vulnerabilities to health disparities or stigmatized conditions, please contact us. The CCHEq can offer support and resources to facilitate your research, training and community service initiatives.
We look forward to working with you to transform science into better health for all.
