UofL Health Equity Innovation Hub awards $1M for research

The University of Louisville's Health Equity Innovation Hub has announced more than $1 million in research funding to advance health equity for marginalized communities, according to a July 26 report from the University of Louisville News.

Ten projects were awarded funding during the initial round and were eligible for up to $100,000 per year for three years. Monica Wendel, DrPH, associate dean for public health practice, said finding solutions will create more choices for people making healthcare decisions. 

"We all want to be healthy and whole. But the choices people make are the choices people have. For communities that have been marginalized, their choices are greatly limited by structural and social barriers. Our goal with the Hub and with this research is to dismantle these barriers, create more choices and thus empower people and communities," Dr. Wendel said. 

Here is the list of funded projects.
