Administrative Core

Campus Fb

The Administrative Core objective is to identify the ongoing research, training and outreach projects that address issues relating to minority health at UNTHSC, the surrounding community and the state of Texas. Once these resources are identified, the goal is to facilitate communication between them so the programs and projects become interactive and synergize with one another.
