The annual Health Equity Leadership Institute (HELI) is a weeklong “research boot camp” focused on increasing the number of investigators, particularly minority investigators, engaged in health disparities research to achieve health equity. HELI reflects an important academic consortium between two NIH funded Centers of Excellence: CCHE and the Center for Health Equity at the University of Maryland School of Public Health. HELI targets junior faculty in an effort to increase the likelihood of their promotion and tenure at health science research institutions.

Thank you to those who offered their perspective about the value of HELI in 2014.
