Engaged Scholars: Darrell Gray, Joshua Joseph and Timiya Nolan
The community-engaged scholarship of Darrell Gray, Joshua Joseph and Timiya Nolan explores novel strategies, interventions and partnerships to address health disparities among populations made vulnerable by systemic inequity. As health equity, when everyone has a fair and just opportunity to attain their highest level of health possible, is their goal, it is absolutely critical to center the voices and lived experiences of the community, through meaningful and mutually beneficial partnerships, in addressing barriers to their health and wellness. They are honored to do that through research, clinical care and advocacy, and to share the importance of community engagement with the next generation of leaders through teaching and mentoring.Learn More
