The Winship Cancer Institute’s Health Disparities Initiative
The Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University established a focus on cancer health disparities that would serve as a cross-cutting theme for the center to address the cancer health disparities documented across the state of Georgia, and as a means to facilitate inter-programmatic interactions.
The goals of the Winship Health Disparities Initiative (HDI) are:
to initiate, enable, and sustain research and related activities that address issues relevant to cancer health disparities;
to promote and facilitate Winship inter-programmatic interactions that encompass health disparities;
to build collaborations among other academic, healthcare, community-based, federal and state agencies, and other partners that will contribute to research and other activities that may serve to address and reduce cancer health disparities in Georgia and the region.
The Winship Health Disparities Initiative project is sponsored by the Center to Reduce Cancer Health Disparities (CRCHD) of the National Cancer Institute (NCI).
