Kentucky Health

CHET’s mission is to synergize innovative, transdisciplinary and impactful research and training to improve the health of the most vulnerable residents of Kentucky and beyond. Kentuckians suffer tremendous health inequities--among the highest national rates of the leading causes of death, cardiovascular disease, cancer, substance abuse, diabetes, and obesity. Key health disparity data are included in the tabs to the right. CHET researchers aim to go beyond documenting health disparities and move to reducing or eliminating these health problems through intervention, implementation, dissemination, and translational science.
