The Director’s Message Paul D. Juarez, PhD Principal Investigator and Director National Institute of Minority Health and Health Disparities Health Disparities Research Center of Excellence at Meharry Professor and Vice-Chair Department of Family and Community Medicine Meharry Medical College On behalf of the National Health Disparities Research Center of Excellence at Meharry Medical College and with the support of the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD), I welcome you to the Inaugural M. Alfred Haynes Research Training Institute for Social Equity. This is an exciting new venue, established under the leadership of Dr. Patricia Matthews Juarez, Associate Vice President for Faculty Affairs and Development and Director of the Center’s Research Training Core, to promote interdisciplinary research among early and mid-level investigators who share our passion and recognition for the need to address social equity as a cornerstone of a national strategy to eliminate health disparities. This research training institute is named in honor of Dr. M. Alfred Haynes, former President/Dean of Charles R. Drew Post Graduate Medical School in Los Angeles, CA. Throughout his career, Dr. Haynes has led national efforts to bring attention to health disparities and for the need to increase the numbers of underrepresented minority professionals in the health sciences and health professions. He has been ahead of his time in acknowledging the importance of community medicine, providing culturally competent care, and engaging community in health services research. Dr. Haynes has been a pioneer, a visionary, and on a very personal level, a mentor and inspiration to me and countless others for over thirty years. While he is unable to be with us here during this inaugural institute in his honor, he is here in spirit. We thank you for accepting this challenge and engaging with us in our quest to eliminate health disparities through the promotion of social equity.

Message from the Director of the Research Training Core Patricia Matthews-Juarez, PhD Director, Research Training Core Health Disparities Research Center of Excellence at Meharry Founding Associate Dean for Faculty Affairs and Development Site Principal Investigator for the S.E.C.U.R.E. Gulf Coast Associate Vice President for Faculty Affairs and Development Professor, Department of Family and Community Medicine Meharry Medical College We are delighted that you are joining us for the Inaugural Dr. M. Alfred Haynes Research Training Institute for Social Equity, hosted by the Health Disparities Research Center of Excellence at Meharry Medical College. The goals of this Institute are 1) to increase the number of minority health disparity researchers and 2) diversifying the nation health care research workforce. To address these goals, each year the research training core will implement a health disparities research training institute under the NIHMD/Health Disparities Research Center of Excellence at Meharry entitled: The Dr. M. Alfred Haynes Research Training Institute for Social Equity. The Institute is one mechanism to identify, train, and mentor junior faculty members working in the area of health disparity and community engagement. We believe that this training mechanism will create a cadre of junior faculty member and will form the basis of an academic faculty pipeline program, while enhancing the role of mentoring and hands-on practice in health disparity research. These new health services scientists will add to the number of minority and faculty members, who will continue to examine, explore, and seek to influence national health policy regarding access to care issues through evidence-based health disparity research. As health services researchers, we share your interest in health disparity research and this Institute brings us together to share information, interest, knowledge, and skills as social scientists whose tasks are to explore and examine questions of social determinants, and to discover the importance, impact, and facts about how social determinants shape, advance, challenge the nature of health disparities, chronic diseases, and community health. As fellows in this Institute, we are hopeful that when you leave, you will be more convinced that communitybased research focusing on the matters covered in this Institute, can guide societal changes, especially, in vulnerable communities with limited resources in your community, nationally, and internationally. Hence, during the two weeks that you are with us, you will work to expand your knowledge and understanding of health disparity research and health disparities issues, while having access to the senior scientists who are willing to assist you in achieving your goals and objectives. With that in mind, we have put together a course of study what we believe will be both an enjoyable and informative experience for everyone. Thank you for participating in this year's Inaugural M. Alfred Haynes Research Training Institute for Social Equity. MAHRTISE- Meharry Medical College - 2011

About the Institute Goal: This institute will focus on expanding the knowledge and understanding of health disparity research while improving and enhancing research skills in health services research.

Course Information The Institute is designed to expose and enhance the knowledge and skills of fellows about fundamental policy issues and concerns in the access to care systems as well as cutting-edge health disparities issues that are of national concern. The Institute provides fellows and mentors with insight into how and why particular health policies are developed and implemented as well as how they affect communities experiencing health disparities. Additionally, the fellows will receive an overview of health disparity research methods and applications and health services. The overview will focus on research theory, methodology, and applications. Sessions will include reviewing managerial applications including case management, use of hospital information systems, and comparative effectiveness studies used for improving health outcomes for high-risk patients. The Institute will provide fellows with the opportunity to work directly with their mentors and research team to cover topics such as, 1) Research Design; 2) Analyses of Large Databases; 3) Survey Methodology, 4) Assessment of Health Status; 5) Measurement of Racial, Ethnic, and Socioeconomic Disparities; and 6) Appropriateness of interventions.

The Institute will

 Expand the fellows’ knowledge and understanding of health disparity, health services research, and community-based participatory research;  Improve and enhance the fellows’ skills to engage the community in health services research;  Provide opportunities for community and faith-based leaders to participate in the development and implementation of a translational, health services research program that seeks to eliminate health disparities;  Develop new and nurture ongoing regional partnerships;  Provide networking opportunities for fellows’ and  Provide continuing education for physicians, nurses, social workers, and other health care professionals.

Target Audience The institute is designed for underrepresented minority junior faculty from the fields of medicine, dentistry, public health, nursing, health policy, social work, psychology, sociology, health care management and health care administration who are interested in developing a research career in health services, health disparity, and translational research.
