Health Equity Research Education Program (HEREP)

Our pipeline continues with postdoctoral fellows and junior faculty who participate in our Health Equity Research Education Program (HEREP), formerly called the Health Disparities Research Education Program (HDREP). Scholars are mentored in research training and career development and take courses on bioethics, biostatistics, epidemiology, and minority aging. There is an intensive grant writing retreat during which each participant presents a grant proposal that may be submitted to an external funding agency, and receives critical feedback to increase fundability. Scholars who complete the program requirements may be eligible to apply for pilot funding to start their project.

The program is sponsored by grants from the NIH National Cancer Institute (NCI), NIH National Institute on Aging (NIA) and NIH National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD), Creighton University, Morehouse School of Medicine, Tuskegee University, the University of Alabama, and the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), and coordinated by the UAB MHERC.
