Health Equity at Duke: Research
Improving health and well-being for all people is an integral goal of Duke Health’s research. Duke’s research works to achieve health equity through understanding disparities and intervening on those disparities and inequities, both clinical and social, to improve lives. Health equity research across the translation spectrum, disciplines, and community and academic lines is paramount at Duke. The newly launched Community Connections and Collaborations Core (C4), housed within the Duke Clinical and Translational Science Award and the Center for Community and Population Health Improvement, facilitates equitable, authentic, and robust community engaged research. C4 offers a suite of extensive resources aimed to build capacity, facilitate connections and fostering authentic communication between academic and community partners to improve community and population health across the translational research spectrum (T1-4).
