Health Equity


In order to create spaces and opportunities for communities of color to equip themselves further to become emerging health and racial equity leaders in the South, this blueprint aims to – (1) create a Data Justice Hub where research projects focusing on the health disparities and inequities of LGBT* POC can be cultivated, and (2) create a coalition of racial and health equity emerging leaders who can be conduits and bridge-builders for organizations, institutions, and non-profits for social determinants of health. These leaders can be changemakers and continue to create solutions that can impact health in the long-term. With a multifaceted approach to influencing research, policy, and creating a coalition in the South, public health critical race theorists can emerge as champions for health and racial equity in the Southeastern United States.
