BRIC Research Activities

The overall intent of this core is to provide the required research infrastructure to support our research objectives:

  • Conduct original and innovative biomedical/behavioral research aimed at eliminating health disparities as they relate to diabetes, HIV/AIDS, hypertension/cardiovascular disease, and sleep deprivation as it relates to alcoholism and drug addiction.
  • Translate health services research outcomes into improvements for Winston-Salem's sizeable minority population and throughout the 12-county Piedmont Triad by leveraging WSSU's long-standing community partnerships.
  • Create training opportunities for undergraduate/graduate students and junior faculty to pursue research interests in minority health or health disparities.
