The Hampton University Center for Caribbean Health Research
President Dr. William R. Harvey proudly announces the creation of the new Hampton University Center for Caribbean Health Research (HU-CCHR). The HU-CCHR will serve as the convening and coordinating center for research and programmatic activities aimed at eliminating health disparities in both the United States and the Caribbean. The HU-CCHR has established a distinguished and diverse Steering Committee Advisory Board that is composed of progressive and engaged experts in the fields of Public Health, Population Health, Clinical Health, and Research.
Hampton University is partnering with the University of the Bahamas, St. George’s University in Grenada, the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) and the Caribbean Public Health Agency in this initiative. “This new Center ushers in an innovative era of utilizing the tremendous capacities of Hampton University-based researchers to partner with their colleagues from across the Caribbean in forging meaningful and sustainable solutions to conditions that give rise to health disparities” states Dr. William R. Harvey. “We at Hampton measure our successes by the contributions and services that we provide to our community, our nation, and the world,” Dr. Harvey views the establishment of the Center as an initial, but significant step towards meaningful research that will lead to viable health outcomes in addressing health disparities in both the United States and the Caribbean.
