2013-2014 Annual Report

The Health Equity Institute is excited to announce that our 2013-2014 Annual Report is available, which highlights our work and accomplishments from the last year. Over the last year, we have worked hard to ensure broad and accessible dissemination of HEI’s activities, research outcomes, and educational efforts. We have strengthened our training programs for students and expanded our forms of communication through an increase in social media activity, creation of new infographics, and student-produced documentaries on health and social justice. We continue to collaborate with our community, government, and academic partners, report on our research findings, and train our next generation of health equity scholars, in order to eliminate social inequities and disparities in health and work towards a just and healthy society for all.
