Session Description
Great opportunities exist to modify administrative practices in higher education to protect, support, and advance health equity research, health equity scholar career development, and community-academic partnerships. In this HELI Session 3, our own Sarah Esmond (UW CCHE) will facilitate a conversation with two health equity experts, examining career pathways, NIH data trends for Scholars with underrepresented minority status, and the critical role research administration has in successful implementation of health equity research.

Ms. Esmond welcomes back HELI alumna, Dr. Tisha Felder, Associate Professor at the University of South Carolina, who will share NIH K to R award trends alongside lessons learned from her own K research program development. This segment of our program will highlight key research administration moments and impact on her career development timeline.

Ms. Esmond and Dr. Felder will be joined by Dr. Lori Carter-Edwards, Assistant Dean for Community Engagement, Kaiser Permanente Bernard J. Tyson School of Medicine, who will share her Scientific Autobiography and how it led her to national efforts to address fiscal and administrative barriers and facilitators impacting community-engaged research and health equity. This segment of our program will introduce promising practices stemming from national demonstration projects focused on uniform guidance.

Please join us for a scintillating conversation and Call to Action focused on asset-based approaches to strengthen administrative practices in academic health centers in support of community-engagement and health equity research!

HELI 2021 will take place via 3 virtual sessions to occur between May and December.  Each session is designed to inspire and to celebrate achievement while also maintaining our high standard of keeping it real. We are opening up virtual programming to an expanded audience of HELI alumni, prospective HELI Scholars, on- and off campus experts and instructors, and lay members of the public who are curious about what community-academic partnerships are and what health equity scholars do.
