About

Our program is dedicated to fostering community and academic partnerships surrounding issues of health, health care, education, and community planning by highlighting how urban areas can create barriers as well as opportunities for the health of their citizens.

UHP will accomplish its mission by:

  • Connecting scholars conducting health research and community health organizations in Houston.
  • Facilitating interdisciplinary health research.
  • Convening on-campus dialogues on issues relevant to urban health.
