HEAL Network

Stanford Faculty working in partnership to achieve health equity

In response to growing interest and expertise among faculty that are dedicated to addressing health disparities, we have launched a Health Equity Action Leadership (HEAL) Network. Based in research and scholarship, the HEAL Network brings faculty together to determine how we can better address health inequities. Through the Network members are able to:

  • Participate in education and training  
  • Identify collaborative funding opportunities
  • Develop local and National policies to address health disparities
  • Receive or provide mentorship

HEAL Network membership is currently open to Stanford Medicine faculty who are involved or interested in Health Equity Research. While membership is currently limited to faculty, most HEAL Network activities are open to anyone at Stanford with an interest in Health Equity research. We will promote HEAL Network activities to a broad audience through the HEAL and SPHERE Websites and other communication approaches. See who is in the HEAL Network.

The HEAL Network builds upon the vision from Stanford Precision Health for Ethnic and Racial Equity (SPHERE), a five-year initiative led by Bonnie Maldonado that is dedicated to reducing disease in minority populations through the implementation of precision health projects and community engagement.
