As a part of their continued commitment to improving the health of individuals and populations, academic medical centers are conducting research to find solutions for inequities in health and health care. The 2018 Health Equity Research Snapshot, an initiative of the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), highlights seven videos featuring innovative community-partnered research projects within AAMC member medical schools with preventative medicine residency programs, and explores how people and their communities can avoid or counter risks for chronic illnesses. The effort is a collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Prevention Research Centers, a network of 26 academic research centers across the country.
