Obesity Health Disparities PRIDE

Click on image to view the OHD PRIDE brochureObesity Health Disparities PRIDE (OHD PRIDE) is an evidence-based, culturally and environmentally relevant research training and mentoring program focusing on obesity prevention and treatment, including community-based interventions. Early-career faculty and transitioning postdoctoral fellows from underrepresented backgrounds who are graduates of, or are currently employed at, Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) are eligible to apply.

OHD PRIDE logoA distinguished group of mentors and instructors (many of whom are from underrepresented backgrounds) have been assembled to provide skills training and mentoring to help participants develop programs of research that develop and evaluate community-based interventions to address obesity disparities.

OHD PRIDE is funded by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), an institute within the National Institutes of Health (NIH). NIH encourages institutions to diversify their faculty populations to enhance the participation of individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, individuals with disabilities, and women at senior faculty levels.
