The HEALTH Research Institute will leverage an interdisciplinary group of researchers at the University of Houston to advance science capable of meeting the health needs of the Houston community and beyond.
Our primary mission is to conduct cutting-edge research that informs novel prevention and intervention strategies that mitigate a broad range of health disparities.
Our partnerships with community stakeholders will inform a growing public health challenge through multi-site cooperative trials, public health initiatives, and empowering dissemination activities that are embedded in the cultural fabric of the communities we serve.
We are actively engaged in innovative and rigorous scientific inquiry that will generate new knowledge that exerts a sustainable impact on mitigating – and ultimately eliminating – health disparities.
Our collective impact is dependent on our capacity to partner with stakeholders to derive a shared vision that ultimately empowers community-embedded change agents who are equipped to improve their quality and length of life.
We are dedicated to working with our community to discover and promote sustainable solutions to real-world health challenges.
