Cornell Center for Health Equity Town Hall Meeting

The Cornell Center for Health Equity is hosting a Town Hall Meeting on Monday, March 8th, 2021 at 4 PM to introduce the Center's new RFP opportunity. Participants will be briefed on the application process and eligibility criteria. In efforts to coordinate meaningful breakout groups, please take a moment to email Grace Figuereo, Administrative Specialist for the Cornell Center for Health Equity, at about research topics you may be interested in collaborating on.

The Cornell Center for Health Equity is pleased to request applications for one-year pilot project grants. The primary goals of this opportunity are to:

  1. Support up to three pilot projects
  2. Support up to four community partnership building projects

Either type of project must: be collaborative, novel, and innovative; focus on research in health and/or healthcare disparities; and build towards extramural funding. The pilot projects are strongly encouraged to engage a community partner, but a community partnership is not required if the investigators provide a convincing justification (for example, the study involves a large national or international data set).

The purpose of this funding opportunity is to advance the One Cornell strategic objective by forming teams comprised of scientists and scholars from across our Ithaca and New York City campuses with the overall goal of enhancing collaboration to take more complete advantage of Cornell University’s considerable talent pool.
