Current Health Equity Resources (July 2020)

The UWPRC is continuing to build racial equity into our work and research as best as we can. Part of this process includes looking to healthy equity resources to inform our work. We have compiled resources from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention and are developing some of our own resources listed below.

We recognize that our community partners who are centering racial and health equity in their work are already using resources or have built resources around health equity. So we want to hear from you, our community partners. What tools and resources on racial and health equity would you like to see us use? If you have resources, tools, or other suggestions to share, please send them to us at or submit in the text box below.
