Maryland Center for Health Equity Fund

Funds provide support for the development of broad, multidisciplinary research initiatives that will address racial and ethnic health disparities.  These include the Health Advocates In-Reach and Research (HAIR) campaign, a culturally tailored, community-based intervention, and “Shots at the Shop,” part of a broader Biden administration effort to quickly increase lagging COVID-19 vaccination rates in Black, Latino and other communities of color through community-based programs, which will train Black hairstylists and barbers across the country to dispel myths and disinformation about COVID-19.  The Center is also working to publish and distribute a graphic novel that will feature barbers and stylists and their shops to combat misinformation about the pandemic.
