Summary

The Healthy Environments Partnership was established in October 2000, as a part of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences “Health Disparities Initiative.” The Healthy Environments Partnership seeks to expand the knowledge base of how social and economic inequalities are linked to disparities in cardiovascular health among residents of Detroit.
