Center for Addressing Health Disparities Research & Education

The Center for Addressing Health Disparities through Research and Education (CAHDRE) is the new National Institutes of Health (NIH) Exploratory Center of Excellence that is coalescing health pathway programs at the University of Alaska Anchorage to maximize value and catalyze the creation of new programs and research capacity.

CAHDRE brings health career pathway programs together to create more opportunities for Alaskans. CAHDRE is also creating new pathway programs. It is partnering with the Anchorage School District in implementing its new Health Career Academy and other related activities.

At the University of Alaska Anchorage, the CAHDRE Project was established to
accomplish several aims:

  •  Collaborate with others to encourage and support students, especially underrepresented minorities, into health careers.
  •  Inform students and faculty about health disparities issues in Alaska.
  •  Assist health students to develop skills in assessing and using evidence to improve their practice.
  •  Mentor students and faculty interested in pursuing careers/projects in health research.
  •  Infuse an orientation toward exploration and inquiry at all levels of education.
