What We Do
The Health Equity Research Lab is an interdisciplinary group of researchers, clinicians, and community partners conducting research to improve physical and mental health in diverse communities. We are part of Cambridge Health Alliance, a safety net health care system in Boston metro-north area, whose mission is to improve the health of local communities with a longstanding commitment to vulnerable and diverse populations. Striving to achieve health equity, the Lab 1) develops and evaluates high impact interventions to reduce health disparities; 2) identifies the mechanisms and factors of resiliency underlying health in the face of social and economic adversity; 3) fosters collaboration among researchers, clinicians, and community members, and 4) trains junior investigators (post-docs and junior faculty) to produce actionable research.
