    A distinguished group of mentors and instructors (many of who 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.
