In March of 2020 New York State’s Gov. Andrew Cuomo charged Havidan Rodríguez, President of the University at Albany, SUNY, with leading a team of public health, social welfare, emergency preparedness and other experts from both research and practice in a study of the environmental, socioeconomic and occupational factors causing Latinx and Black individuals in the state to be disproportionately harmed by COVID-19. See www.albany.edu/mhd.
In pursing this charge and at the request of President Rodríguez, the Vice President for Research at the University at Albany, Dr. James Dias partnered with the Vice President for Research from SUNY Downstate Health Sciences University, Dr. David Christini, and the Vice President for Research from SUNY Upstate Medical University, Dr. David Amberg, to strengthen existing and build new research and practice collaborations focused on health equity. With this goal in mind, Dias, Christini and Amberg laid out a three-phase plan to produce the shared agenda and to begin working collaboratively on that agenda.
This document reports on Phase 1 of the three-phase plan including presenting a set of recommendations for the Shared Health Equity Agenda and creating the enabling conditions for success. This document is presented as input to the ongoing discussions about a shared health equity research agenda. As such, it may help guide near-term decisions about priorities, timeline, action steps, metrics, and entities responsible for building the agenda.
