Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) 

Leaders from Alabama’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) support the work of the MHRC to develop health disparities research training programs for minority students and faculty. The partnerships, funded by the National Institute for Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI), help increase the pipeline of talented and culturally-sensitive investigators in the field of health disparities research.
