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.

Pitt Parking Day 2018

Friday 9/21 9:00AM - 3:00PM
University of Pittsburgh

The Center for Health Equity (CHE) joins in Pitt PARK(ing) Day with an unique installation addressing the concept of health equity and ideal of a smoke-free campus. 

Through creative energy and experimentation, participants in this annual one-day event held on the third Friday of September take an urban parking space--an otherwise dead space in an otherwise busy urban landscape--and turn it into a pop-up "installation" for a day. The event raises awareness about the importance of a livable city and helps people re-think how our streets can be utilized. Rebar, an art and design studio based in San Francisco, started the concept of PARK(ing) Day in 2005; now it is celebrate internationally with over 1000 parking spaces utilized worldwide.

Stop by the Pitt BO Lot (between Oakland Ave. & South Bouquet Street; directly across Fifth Avenue from Pitt Public Health) between 9am-3pm on Friday, September 21, for an interactive experience!
