The Mary Ann Swetland Center for Environmental Health will host a representative from the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Public Health Center for Health Equity for this month’s Swetland Seminar Series event Tuesday, Feb. 20, from 9 to 10 a.m. via Zoom.
The University of Pittsburgh’s School of Public Health Center for Health Equity (CHE) launched 29 years ago when its predecessor entity, The Center for Minority Health, was founded, setting into motion a goal of developing research, teaching and service in support of improving the health and well-being of underrepresented populations.
In its current form, CHE continues with its mission of elevating and uplifting health equity and justice.
During this seminar, attendees will learn about the history of CHE and its development, highlights and accomplishments over the years, and future plans.
Dara D. Méndez, associate professor of epidemiology at University of Pittsburgh’s School of Public Health and associate director of CHE, will present.
