Upcoming HDRG Meeting

The Health Disparities Research Group (HDRG) is a multidisciplinary assembly of faculty, students, staff, and community representatives with a vision “to become an integral facilitator in eliminating health disparities through partnerships with our community.” Held the 3rd Friday of each month throughout the academic year, the meetings provide an opportunity to share research and cultivate a positive atmosphere for community-engagement in addressing health disparities.

The next meeting is November 17, at 1:00 pm in Bio-medical Library Room 222-A. Danny Patterson, Coordinator, Collaborations and Partnerships, Gulf States Health Policy Center, will share about their work in his presentation “Building Community Based Research through Community Coalitions.” Danny’s presentation is based on a poster that he and colleagues presented at the 4th Annual Community Engagement Institute in Birmingham that won an award in the conceptual framework category.

Please join us on November 17.
