CHE Journal Club: Health Equity In Research Planning For African American Populations

February 15, 2019 -

1:00pm to 2:00pm

The Center for Health Equity (CHE) hosts a monthly Journal Club meeting to facilitate dialogue about health equity among faculty, students, staff, and community members.  We hope to spark an intellectually enriching discussion regarding ways to research a problem or intervene to contribute to the solution.

in honor of Black History Month, the February Journal Club will focus on an African American topic and be hosted at the University of Pittsburgh Community Engagement Center in Homewood!

Article for discussion:  A Health Equity Framework for Research Planning and Evaluation in African American Populations (Maternal and Child Health Journal. 2018 Feb; 22(2):147-153. doi: 10.1007/s10995-017-2411-z (copies of the article are on the CHE Bulletin Board at 6134 Public Health)
