In partnership with the Sinai Urban Health Institute, DePaul has created the SUHI-DePaul Research Fellows program. The program allows faculty to collaborate on research that aims to understand health disparities and improve health equity in Chicago by translating research into scalable actions. Fellows will have the opportunity to experience SUHI’s unique, community-focused research center using a transdisciplinary approach.
Interested faculty can attend an information and networking session on Wednesday, Jan. 22 at 4 p.m. on the Loop Campus. Please RSVP here.
At the session, Fernando De Maio, the 2019 DePaul Faculty Fellow, and Maureen Benjamins, a SUHI Senior Research Fellow, will discuss their fellowship experience work which resulted in a forthcoming book, “Unequal Cities: Racial Disparities in Mortality.” SUHI President Sharon Homan will share more about this opportunity to engage in place-based social justice oriented research. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions as well as network with DePaul colleagues.
The Fellowship runs from April 1 through Aug. 31, 2020 – both spring and summer quarters. Fellows will receive a stipend of $5,000. Applications are due Feb. 15. More information about the program and application guidelines is available online.
