TCHD HEARD Scholarship and Vashisht Professorship

We are excited to announce that the application is now open for the Health Education, Awareness and Research in Disparities (HEARD) Scholar and the Vashisht Professorship offered by the Texas Center for Health Disparities.  For this year’s solicitation, the HEARD scholarship and Vashisht Professorships will be offered to the same individual.  In future years, the HEARD scholarship will run independently.

The successful HEARD Scholar needs to be either engaged in or has the potential for developing a strong educational and research platform in minority health and health disparities (basic biomedical, translational, clinical and community based). The Naresh Vashisht Professorship in Indian American Health and Health Disparities is the first of its kind professorship focusing on the Asian Indian Americans.  We invite all UNTHSC faculty to apply for this distinguished position.

An informational meeting will be held at 8:00 a.m. on Monday, October 21st in EAD 440.  Please rsvp to by October 16th to ensure we have enough room to accommodate all who would like to attend.
