Health Equality

Ola HAWAI‘I is calling for proposals for collaborative research projects conducted by faculty of the UH System to determine causes of and interventions for communities in Hawai‘i that suffer disproportionately from genetic, environmental, and socioeconomic disparities in health and healthcare access, particularly Native Hawaiians, other Pacific Islanders, and Filipinos. “Ola” means “health” or “to heal,” and “HAWAI‘I” stands for “Health and Wellness Achieved by Impacting Inequalities.” Any eligible faculty member of the UH System holding a doctoral degree and possessing the skills, knowledge and resources necessary to carry out the proposed research is invited to submit an abstract, but priority for funding will be given to new and early-stage investigators. The proposed research must involve a transdisciplinary team of investigators or collaborators from disparate disciplines, and/or community partners. Applicants may request an annual budget with direct costs between $25,000 and $50,000 per year for one year. There will be an informational webinar on the opportunity on Monday, October 8, from 10 to 11 a.m. via Zoom. For more information, you can contact Marla Berry at JABSOM at mberry@hawaii.edu.
