The work of the Center for African American Health is organized under four pillars: service, education, research and policy.

  • Service through community engagement, advocacy, referrals, clinical care management and coordination.
  • Education through mentorship, building the workforce pipeline, and supporting curricular changes.
  • Research through improving research practices and conducting innovative and inclusive research.
  • Policy through the translation of research into advocacy.
