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 John Lowe and Chief Dennis Coker of the University of Texas at Austin CRHE grant as they discuss their project, reflect on the value of community-led research, and explain how their work will inform changes in the health care system.
