The Center for the Study of Community Health offers a unique research environment that includes clinicians, researchers, health-related professionals, social and behavioral scientists, and community leaders who are setting new standards in the state of Alabama and around the world. The Center is a member of the Prevention Research Centers Program, supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The Minority Health & Health Disparities Research Center (MHRC) is a comprehensive educational, research and community outreach center that provides UAB and community researchers with an infrastructure to develop research initiatives aimed at eliminating racial/ethnic health disparities, career development and training activities, and community outreach in health initiatives. Through the MHRC, faculty will gain access to the necessary resources that will enhance and develop their skills in minority health research, education, and medical service. This support, plus access to the specific services of the MHRC programs and cores will greatly enhance faculty opportunities and success in obtaining funding for minority health research.
The SSCRC fosters cross-disciplinary research, training and outreach that examines the effects of development on human health and well being to prompt innovative solutions and promote sustainable community design. Specifically, the center brings together faculty exploring sustainable building and design concepts, social impacts of technology, public health, emergency preparedness and response, plus public policy and more to change the way we interact with our environment. Its goal is to create a foundation for urban infrastructure that is economically affluent, environmentally responsible and socially equitable.
