One part of the Health Equity Work Group’s (HEWG) mission is giving greater visibility to health inequalities research at the University of Minnesota School of Public Health and nationally.
As such, HEWG works with faculty to provide research opportunities and facilitate collaborations.
Currently, the HEWG does not have the capacity to facilitate student research projects. Students interested in actively participating in health equity research are encouraged to review our faculty affiliate page and reach out to faculty that have similar research interest. Students may also find projects open to students under the projects tab.
The three main research opportunities HEWG facilitates are:
- Working with Faculty Affiliates to broaden health equity research at the University of Minnesota
- Collaborating with the Program in Health Disparities Research to host an annual networking luncheon
- Advertising health equity research projects that faculty members are working on
See the tabs under Research to learn more about Faculty Affiliates, the networking luncheon, and projects.
