Health Disparities - Community Outreach & Chronic Disease Management

The School of Nursing has a strong tradition in community outreach, health promotion and disease prevention for underserved populations. In the United States and within Alabama, there are disparities that exist that contribute to health outcomes among individuals and groups. Health disparities research focuses on understanding inequities in physical and mental health, and life expectancy among gender, socioeconomic, and racial groups.

The School of Nursing is looking forward to enriching their research expertise in Health Disparities by allocating a full time faculty position to Auburn University’s cluster hire initiative. A special focus of the cluster is to improve population health, with a special emphasis on the underserved and disadvantaged, in the community, state, region, nation, and world by identifying, understanding, and addressing health disparities.

 

Specific Aims

  • Foster interdisciplinary collaboration and partnerships in conducting health disparities research.
  • Facilitate development of competitive research proposals for identifying, understanding and remediating health disparities.
  • Support wide dissemination of findings from health disparities research conducted by cluster members to a range of professional and lay audiences, so as to affect science, policy, and practice related to health and health disparities.
  • Promote interdisciplinary education and training across colleges and schools within Auburn University programs that address health disparities and prepare the next generation of health disparity scholars.
