UB is fighting health disparities in Buffalo

Published December 30, 2019


The Buffalo News published an editorial supporting UB’s leadership role in creating the UB Community Health Equity Research Institute, which will fight health disparities in some of Buffalo’s poorest neighborhoods. The piece states that “The university’s resources and expertise are well-matched to the task. U.S. News this year listed UB as the 31st-ranked public university in the country.

Ten different schools — medicine, nursing, public health, pharmacy, social work, architecture and planning, law, management, the Graduate School of Education and the College of Arts and Sciences — will contribute to the institute.” The editorial notes that community leaders joined UB President Satish Tripathi and Timothy Murphy, senior associate dean for clinical and translational research in the Jacobs School, and director of UB’s Clinical and Translational Science Institute, for an announcement of the new institute, which Murphy will lead.
