The Appalachian Institute to Advance Health Equity Science (ADVANCE) promotes research that contributes to the developing science of health equity and population health improvement through the study of health outcomes and services, as well as social factors that impact health. ADVANCE fosters social science and health services research to reduce health disparities based on a wide range of social factors, and it supports research collaboration across Ohio University and with community-based research partners.
ADVANCE supports faculty research from multiple disciplines, departments, methods, and schools across Ohio University in order to foster team science and facilitate clinical and community research partnerships. We do this through collaborative meetings and events, partnerships, data support, and other forms of support.
