Previous Community Engagements




Our Mission: o To integrate history and culture into the development of appropriate curricula and research models to predict community health outcomes (Health viewed holistically as embodied by the World Health Organization's definition – "Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity").


Our Mission: o To ensure knowledge from human genome research is adequately translated and appropriately contextualized from bench to bedside and beyond to benefit the community as a distinct, yet highly integrated and interactive part of a hierarchical biosocial system (i.e., individual, family, population group, community, and nation).
