The Duke Children’s Health and Discovery Initiative is pleased to announce a request for letters of interest for the Child Health Equity Program. The goal of this program is to support investigators at Duke and within the larger Durham community and surrounding areas who are conducting research to advance child health equity. For the purposes of this program, we define promoting health equity as efforts to reduce and/or eliminate health disparities and the determinants that adversely affect or exclude marginalized groups. The funds supplied by this award are intended to support research projects that have strong potential to inform or develop testable interventions to address child health disparities.
