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.
