Directory of UC Faculty

University of California Health Equity Researchers

The California Initiative for Health Equity and Action (Cal-IHEA) is dedicated to facilitating, funding, and supporting new and existing University of California faculty engagements with State policymakers in an effort to drive evidence-based policies. Paramount to this effort is mapping the landscape of researchers across the UC system that are engaged in topics related to health equity.

We hope UC faculty and state policymaking stakeholders can use this tool as a means to encourage and enhance collaboration! If a UC researcher you know is not currently featured in the directory but has interest in being so, please email healthequity@berkeley.edu
