The Center for Health Equity (CHE) created an inaugural Health Justice Scholars Program to support the development of Pitt Public Health scholars who have interests and/or projects in health equity and justice. This includes, but is not limited to, health equity research, policy, and practice in areas such as:
- Chronic disease
- Violence prevention
- Maternal and infant health
- Mental health
- Interventions focused on Black, Latinx, and communities of color
Scholars will have access to professional development and training opportunities with their peers and CHE-affiliated faculty and experts.
Eligibility: Current Pitt Public Health students
Scholars will also have an opportunity to work closely with a CHE faculty member/researcher conducting work in areas such as chronic disease, violence prevention, maternal and infant health, mental health, and interventions focused on Black, Latinx and communities of color, and will benefit from professional development and training opportunities with their peers and CHE-affiliated faculty and experts. Scholars will engage in monthly meetings to network with other Health Justice Scholars and CHE faculty.
CHE will provide scholars with a maximum stipend of $1000 during the spring 2021 term with an average time commitment of 2-4 hours per week.
Applications are due by Monday, January 11, 2021. CHE will select the final scholars by late January 2021.
