Urban Health Initiative

The Urban Health Initiative (UHI) at Case Western Reserve University seeks ways to transform health and bridge the gap between health providers and experts within the urban populations of Northeast Ohio. UHI will do this through fostering strong relationships between institutions, schools, departments and the community.

The program is part of the Weatherhead Institute for Family Medicine and Community Health and is focused on 3 primary goals:

  • Escalate and promote research initiatives and teaching opportunities for physicians, health providers, researchers, and community organizations
  • Engage neighborhood residents, community educators, government officials, and philanthropy to ultimately support and promote wellness in urban areas of Northeast Ohio.
  • Forge partnerships with the University and community in healthcare and education.
