Improving Health Through Community Building Initiatives

The Mid-South Transdisciplinary Collaborative Center for Health Disparities Research (Mid-South TCC) seeks to reduce the disparities in chronic disease burden experienced by African Americans in six Mid-South states. The goal is to address the social determinants that interplay to impact a person’s health and produce disparate health outcomes of minority populations. The center focuses on pathways to obesity and chronic illness and the mechanisms connecting these pathways to health disparities throughout the life-course.
