Transforming for Equity

Within the Transforming for Equity portfolio, we foster system- and organizational-level transformation in pursuit of health equity by convening diverse stakeholders, measuring and improving readiness to change, and shaping organizational culture to name and address racism in public health. For example:

Champions Advancing Racial Equity in Sepsis (CARES) is an NIH-funded study to develop and evaluate a coalition-based leadership intervention to equip health systems and their surrounding communities to mitigate structural racism and drive measurable reductions in inequities in sepsis outcomes.

Equitable Breakthroughs in Medicine Development (EQBMED) is a national initiative to create a patient-centric, scalable model to achieve equity in clinical research for Black, Hispanic, and Latino populations through innovative and sustainable partnerships across patients, communities, clinical trial sites and sponsors of biopharmaceutical research. GHLI is leading on the development of a Site Maturity Assessment Model and related tools, focusing on organizational readiness to strengthen clinical trial diversity.

All of Us is a large-scale NIH funded national initiative with a goal of enrolling one million or more participants, particularly those who are under-represented in biomedical research. The GHLI team is leading the evaluation of the implementation of All of Us, including identifying factors supporting and impeding expansion of this ambitious initiative.

Supporting Race, Ethnicity and Language Data Collection and Use in Connecticut is an initiative of the Connecticut Health Foundation, with implementation support from GHLI. We have supported the creation and facilitation of a state-wide network of health providers, including large health systems, smaller providers, and community-based organizations. This work promotes strategic planning and organizational learning in support of state-wide standards for the collection and use of granular, self-reported race, ethnicity, and language (REL) data to address health inequities in the state.
