THE PROGRAM
The UCLA Center for Population Health and Health Disparities is one of five centers funded by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI), National Institutes of Health. The UCLA Center works in East Los Angeles, a predominately Latino, urban community with high rates of obesity-related chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, hypertension and stroke. The center has three health projects based in East LA that work towards the common goal of reducing cardiovascular disease risk among community members. Each summer, four dyads comprised of an undergraduate student and a graduate health professions student will be partnered with UCLA CPHHD investigators. Students will receive intensive one-on-one mentoring and will participate in seminars and workshops focused on health disparities research and policy, health professions preparation and training and career development, and they will be expected to write a report and present their work to the CPHHD investigators and at scientific and professional meetings.
