How We Work

Community is our #1 priority so we work in partnership with community members in every stage of our research.  Our Community Co-Investigators actively engage in the research, provide oversight and direction, make decisions, attend team meetings, and have a seat at the head of the table.

The Flint Center for Health Equity Solutions (FCHES) consists of 4 Cores and 3 Projects. Our Administrative Core is focused on ensuring quality operations, provides timely accurate reports, and coordinates the efforts between all of our teams.
