Health Equity Speakers 2012-2013
Faculty Allies: Allison E. Aiello, PhD, Epidemiology Department and Amy Schulz, PhD, Health Behavior and Health Education, UM SPH
Rackham Graduate School's Diversity Grant for Faculty Allies Project
This diversity grant opportunity will allow us to develop new initiatives to address critical needs regarding diversity in our departments. Our goals for this proposal focus on continued academic success of diverse students in Epidemiology and Health Behavior and Health Education. We propose to increase faculty involvement interaction with existing School of Public Health (SPH) diversity student organizations and provide greater financial support for the existing diverse student organizations at SPH. The new seminar series entitled “The Health Equity Seminar Series” will increase the number of diverse speakers and talks on topics of diversity so that students are exposed to and can take advantage of meeting with diverse academic role-models and gain a better understanding of the importance of diversity. The speaker series features accomplished and diverse public health professionals speaking about their research to promote population health and health equity. In addition to formal presentations for departmental and school-wide audiences, opportunities for informal interactions with faculty and students (e.g., dinner, small group discussions) are structured aspects of these visits.
