The National Health Equity Research Webcast emphasizes issues and solutions related to collecting and analyzing data for racial and ethnic populations, studying the relationship between race and socioeconomic status, identifying and reducing barriers to conducting research in minority communities, and devising surveys to study minority populations and subpopulations. Co-hosted with the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health, and Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute, the Webcast is an interactive, live-streamed symposium.  This unique forum enables experts in the area of health equity to reach an audience of hundreds of researchers, educators, administrators, practitioners and students throughout the U.S. The broadcast originates from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Recent programs are available as on-demand webcasts. Participants can attend the live event, in person, or view through the live webcast.

Recent broadcasts, such as the 2012 webcast on Social Determinants of Health Disparities and the 2014 webcast on the School to Prison Pipeline have attracted a live audience over 1,000 plus hundreds viewing the recording.
