Abstracts due for the 2024 Paul A. Godley Health Equity Research Week

January 31

We invite UNC faculty, staff, partners and/or students to submit abstracts for the 2024 Paul A. Godley Health Equity Research Week (HERW), reflecting their health equity work in and beyond North Carolina communities. Proposed abstracts should reflect community-based research projects that are working to eliminate health disparities.

We encourage creative approaches to health equity research.


About HERW

The Paul A. Godley Health Equity Research Week (HERW), hosted by the Center for Health Equity Research, brings faculty, staff, students and community members together to share health equity research at UNC. HERW is an opportunity to facilitate collaboration, innovation and equity in the UNC School of Medicine, across Carolina’s communities and beyond. All sessions are open to the entire Carolina community and the general public.

In 2020, the UNC School of Medicine collaborated with CHER to host the first Paul A. Godley Health Equity Symposium. In 2023, the symposium expanded into a week dedicated to highlighting health equity research at Carolina. HERW 2024 will include research presentations and panel discussions.

HERW is co-sponsored by the UNC School of Medicine Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

About Dr. Paul A. Godley

HERW is named in honor of the late Dr. Paul A. Godley, Rush S. Dickson Professor of Hematology/Oncology in the UNC Department of Medicine and Vice Dean for Diversity and Inclusion in the UNC School of Medicine.

Dr. Godley directed the Ethnicity, Culture, and Health Outcomes (ECHO) program from its founding in 2001. His research and leadership helped improve identification, understanding and elimination of racial health disparities.

We are proud to honor his legacy through HERW to inspire impactful research on advancing access to quality healthcare for all.
