We are proud & excited to share a brand new publication discussing our successful model for the Health Equity Leadership Institute!
‘The Health Equity Leadership institute (HELI): Developing workforce capacity for health disparities research,’ is published as an Education Special Communication in the Journal of Clinical and Translational Science, available online as of June 19, 2017. Authors are James Butler, Craig S. Fryer, Mary A. Garza, Sandra C. Quinn, and Stephen B. Thomas from the Maryland Center for Health Equity (M-CHE) at University of Maryland College Park and Earlise Ward, Katelyn Westaby, Alexandra Adams, Sarah L. Esmond, Janice A. Hogle, Linda M. Scholl, and Christine A. Sorkness from the UW-Madison Collaborative Center for Health Equity (CCHE).
This article details the development and evaluation of the HELI from 2010-2016 and includes a link to our online ‘HELI Resource Toolbox’ full of sample tools that can advise and guide implementation of HELI-like events at other institutions. We encourage institutions and individuals to take our model and adapt it for your own purposes. Please share widely across your networks and disseminate this piece to whoever you think may find it useful.
We plan to host HELI 2018 in Madison, WI in June 2018! Subscribe to the HELI blog for announcements of important dates and next steps coming in winter 2017.
