COERE - Center for Outcomes and Effectiveness Research and Education
The mission of the UAB COERE is to build and maintain a successful program of research targeted at improving the quality and outcomes of health care. This is accomplished by:
- using interdisciplinary teams to test innovations that promote evidence-based practice, reduce inequities in care for under-served and minority populations, and improve quality of life and functional outcomes for patients;
- developing and testing innovative methods with application to important questions in the delivery of health care;
- training and mentoring students, fellows and faculty in these methods;
- and serving as a resource to UAB faculty, health care systems, related organizations, government, and philanthropy to further disseminate outcomes research knowledge and expertise.
UAB Minority Health & Health Disparities Research Center
Since its inception in 2003, the UAB Minority Health & Health Disparities Research Center (UAB MHRC) has worked to facilitate the development, implementation, and transfer of research-based information from biomedical, behavioral, and social sciences in order to reduce and eventually eliminate health disparities locally, regionally, and nationally. Designated as a Center of Excellence in Health Disparities by the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities, the UAB MHRC achieves its mission through innovative education, research, and community outreach. As a University-Wide Interdisciplinary Research Center, the UAB MHRC serves as an enabling platform for UAB’s research, teaching, and service missions.
