Colorado Black Health Collaborative

The Colorado Black Health Collaborative‘s (CBHC) mission is to achieve health equity in Colorado’s Black Community.  

CBHC is looking to connect with DU faculty and students on the following projects:

  • Information Dissemination: We would like help turning our in-person trainings focused on health education and screenings into online/recorded training modules to increase our reach to community members.
  • Literature Review: We are interested in researching the unknown/buried history of Black/African Americans who have contributed to health and wellness of the Black community here in Colorado.
  • Creative Work: We would like a DU partner to create a miniature model floorplan and (if possible) a virtual tour of a barbershop/salon to showcase CBHC’s education and screening programs held in those locations.
  • Research Design: We are open to working with students who want to learn more about the Black community by respectfully engaging with our community and have self-directed research project ideas.
