CHES is composed of group of faculty members, staff, students, and community leaders to find new solutions to reduce the persistent health disparities and improve health outcomes in our surrounding communities and beyond. Concerned by the rising prevalence of obesity and chronic diseases among vulnerable populations, CHES recognizes the importance of reducing health disparities in public health policies and practices and utilization research collaborations to find equitable and viable solutions. The goal of CHES is to engage communities in health promotion and disease prevention and work with community partners on health disparities.
“The Community Scholars Collaborative on Health Equity Solutions (CHES) provides a forum for research ideas and collaboration on addressing the major health issues in our surrounding communities and beyond. Join us in our discussions to find viable strategies and develop research collaborations and opportunities to address community health today.”
