Pilot Initiatives

As part of the initial phase, the Initiative’s Steering Committee has identified three areas where we can foster collaboration to address the growing health inequalities in our society, locally and globally.  The Steering Committee identified the following core areas:

  • Research (Biomedical Research/Health Outcomes)
  • Teaching (Curriculum/Teaching Engagement)
  • Community Engagement

By funding pilot projects in these areas, the Initiative is supporting collaborations across schools and campuses, with a special emphasis on addressing health disparities in the Washington DC metropolitan area.
