The overall goal of the Health Equity and Action Translation (HEAT) Core is to design action-oriented, rigorous observational and interventional research to promote equitable diabetes outcomes in diverse settings and across the lifespan.
The HEAT Core:
- Facilitates collaborative cross-disciplinary research
- Supports the career development of junior investigators
- Disseminates research findings
- Provides timely, authoritative and tailored evidence-based consultation to a range of stakeholders
We employ a multi-level systems approach to designing action-oriented, rigorous observational and interventional research to be carried out in Northern California and the Central Valley. We aim to build capacity in carrying out translational research that addresses the range of systems that generate or undermine health – from clinical healthcare systems to public health systems to social systems.
