Grant Funding

We seek grant funding in an effort to reduce violence in specific communities such as those defined by race, ethnicity, tribe, gender, or aging. Our projects are community-based and culturally appropriate, reflecting how language skills, significant cultural differences, education, income and discrimination affect health outcomes.

The current research by the initial core affiliates of the center includes:

Gary Bennett:
Obesity prevention among Black women (studies funded by NIDDK and NCI); Weight loss in community health centers (funded by NHLBI)
