Created in 2012, the Miami CTSI drives research translation into evidence-based clinical and community practices that improve the health of South Florida’s diverse population. In a community comprised of 85% racial and ethnic minorities, the Miami CTSI makes significant contributions in minority health and health disparities and in training underrepresented minorities in clinical, translational and community-engaged research. The Miami CTSI educates, connects and supports research teams by building the distinct science of clinical translational research, fostering collaboration and managing the resources needed to sustain success in these areas.
The Southeastern Health Equity Council (SHEC) is one of 10 regional health equity councils formed in 2011 as a part of the National Partnership for Action to End Health Disparities (NPA). The NPA is a national movement with the mission to improve the effectiveness of programs that target the elimination of health disparities through coordination of leaders, partners and stakeholders that are committed to action. SHEC is a coalition of leaders and health disparities experts representing several sectors and the states of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. SHEC envisions a region free of disparities in health and healthcare, where all people attain the highest level of health. Visit SHEC’s website for more information: http://region4.npa-rhec.org/
