The Community Research for Health Equity (CRHE) program seeks to elevate community voices and make the priorities of communities the primary goal of local health system transformation efforts. In 2022, ten grantees were awarded to address local health system issues of importance to communities of color, people with disabilities, LGBTQ+ individuals, and other historically marginalized populations. 

Watch this video to hear from Erum Ikramullah of the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding CRHE grant as she discusses their project, reflects on the value of community-led research, and explains how their work will inform changes in the health care system.
