Take a Health Professional to the People Day (TADay) is the University of Pittsburgh Center for Health Equity's health promotion and disease prevention initiative in partnership with African American-owned and -operated barbershops in several Pittsburgh communities. Health professionals (including doctors, nurses, pharmacists, dentists, nutritionists, health science students), public health educators, and health organizations volunteer their time to provide screening services and health education in the barbershops.TADay takes place in April in recognition of National Minority Health Month.

About the CHE Journal Club

CHE Journal Club word cloud 2014

The Center for Health Equity hosts a monthly journal club meeting to facilitate dialogue about health equity among faculty, students, staff, and community members. We hope to spark an intellectually, enriching discussion regarding ways to research a problem or intervene to contribute to the solution.

While housed in BCHS, the journal club is open to faculty, students, staff, and community members who are interested in health equity from Pitt Public Health and beyond. Journal club members will take turns in choosing a journal article they find particularly interesting and that can stimulate discussion. Manuscripts are also discussed and feedback is provided to the authors. Faculty-student, staff-student, faculty-staff, community-faculty, and community-staff facilitator teams are encouraged. If you have questions or want to volunteer to facilitate a meeting of the CHE Journal Club, contact Patricia Documét.
