The mission of CARE is to improve health in New Haven among people most impacted by disparities, including Black and Brown communities and low-income populations through collaborative research, practice, and engagement. Since its founding in 2007 at the Yale School of Public Health, CARE has worked to identify solutions to improve the health of New Haven residents through community-based research and projects focusing on social, environmental, and behavioral risk factors.
As of 2016, the Yale-Griffin PRC and CARE are now partnering with the College of Health and Human Services at Southern Connecticut State University (SCSU) to enhance its own efforts to improve the health of New Haven residents. Combining the research strength at the Yale School of Public Health with the practice-based, community-focused programs at SCSU’s College of Health and Human Services, this partnership represents a powerful evolution of CARE by engaging with a local state university to drive deeper change into New Haven.
