2019 Health Equity Leadership Institute (HELI)

Detailed Description: 

The 2019 HELI will take place June 17-21, 2019.

As a National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities Research Center of Excellence, the UW Collaborative Center for Health Equity is committed to increasing the number of investigators, particularly minority investigators, engaged in health disparities/health equity research who are successful in academic appointments and achieving independent funding through the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and other federal agencies.

Our HELI program has been designed in partnership with our academic collaborators at the Maryland Center for Health Equity in the School of Public Health, University of Maryland College Park. The HELI program is carefully structured to include both large didactic sessions, as well as small group sessions, special events, and mentoring opportunities.

Qualifications: Skills: 

A research abstract and an institutional letter of support will be required. Full details can be found in the application packet online.

Qualifications: Experience: 

The HELI program is primarily intended for early state research investigators. Applications will only be considered from post-doctoral fellows, assistant professors, or individuals in similar early stage research career positions who are engaged in minority health and health disparities research. Early career researchers from diverse backgrounds interested in the conduct of health research, within academic, community-based, non-profit, and other non-academic settings, are encouraged to apply.
