The Community Health Advocacy partnership is built on the premise that a multidisciplinary approach to applied research, technology development, and innovation can benefit patient care. The partnership supports applied research programs for community health that address health and wellness challenges in urban settings.

Teams of clinicians, engineers, and social scientists work together to develop technologies, devices, and services that could revolutionize health care. To receive funding, applicants must show that their solutions can be developed quickly, within the project period.

Selected projects are focused on developing solutions in these critical areas:

  • Exploring prototypes for the transformation of care and community-based initiatives that address social determinants of health
  • Improving outcomes and reducing health care disparities
  • Increasing access to care and reducing barriers to care for individuals from all racial and ethnic backgrounds
