About the Center

A center of excellence


Our primary mission is to serve as a comprehensive National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD) Center of Excellence (COE), supporting and conducting innovative research on determinants of minority health and health disparities, including observational studies and clinical trials, at Columbia University Medical Center and Northern Manhattan.

This mission includes training and career development of future and current investigators from underrepresented minorities, and those interested in a career in minority health and health disparities. We have built and maintain important partnerships within the institution and the community to achieve our mission. Our ultimate goal is to achieve improvements in minority health and the elimination of health disparities.
