As part of the REACH Lab, UNL’s Minority Health Disparities Initiative’s Community Impact (MHDI CI) engages stakeholders to identify critical knowledge and service gaps in rural community health disparities.
MHDI works directly with communities to develop collaborative transdisplinary research teams. Together we build innovative CI projects that address these identified gaps. Our rigorous mixed-methods approach combine social science quantitative research strategies with community based participatory research. We facilitate community relationship building for health disparities researchers who seek to have an impact on the communities that their research serves. Throughout all of our projects, we work to translate transdisplinary health disparities research into identifiable community impact.
