The Minority Health Disparities Initiative is a University-wide interdisciplinary research initiative funded by the Office of Research and Economic Development and the Tobacco Settlement Funds in Nebraska. The Initiative provides UNL faculty with an infrastructure for conducting innovative research to improve the health status of vulnerable and disadvantaged populations and expand the participation of minorities in research and education. The objectives of MHDI are to create a community of like-minded scholars capable of engaging each other in the pursuit of high level research on minority health and health disparities, increase the participation of minority scholars at all levels (faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates) in health-related research, and train the next generation of minority health scholars at the undergraduate, graduate, and post-doctoral levels.
