The goal of the Educational Core at the Dorothy I. Height Center for Health Equity & Evaluation Research (DH-CHEER) is to increase the number of individuals in health disparities research by creating unique educational programs and linking them to already existing programs. For instance, DH-CHEER has established a consortium of academic and health institutions known as the Health Disparities Education, Awareness, Research & Training (HDEART) Consortium. HDEART's goal is to create an academic certification program in health disparities.
DH-CHEER and HDEART sponsors several educational activities including the community diabetic educational forums, the University of North Carolina's annual videoconference on health disparities, the National Minority Cancer Awareness Week Luncheon, the Annual Summer Workshop on Health Disparities and the anchor health disparities course entitled, "Disparities in Health in America: Working Toward Social Justice."
In addition, DH-CHEER and HDEART have created a pipeline program—a part of the EXPORT grant project—which fosters students' interest in science from kindergarten to postgraduate education.
