Join us for the monthly Swetland Seminar Series on Tuesday, February 20th, 2024 from 9:00am-10:00am on Zoom.

The University of Pittsburgh’s School of Public Health Center for Health Equity (CHE) marks the 29-year anniversary when the founding of its predecessor entity, The Center for Minority Health, set in motion a goal of developing research, teaching and service in support of improving the health and well-being of underrepresented populations. In its current form, CHE continues with its mission of elevating and uplifting health equity and justice. Our goal is to ensure that our priorities, goals and strategies align with the needs of our local community in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (PA) and Allegheny County, the region of Southwest PA, and the state of PA while also synergizing with our national and global partners. CHE has been successful in our three main pillars of research, service to community and education including leadership in research across the lifespan, continued community-partnered work through the Community Research Advisory Board (CRAB) and development of curricula in health equity. In this seminar, we will share the history of CHE and its development, describe some highlights and accomplishments over the years and plans moving forward.
