CHET supports a range of opportunities for trainees to receive professional development to undertake innovative and transdisciplinary science for the next generation of health equity scholars. Outreach to communities most burdened by health conditions is a fundamental component of these research and training programs.

Training programs include:

DREAM Scholars Program: The Disparities Researchers Equalizing Access for Minorities (DREAM) scholars program supports the training of underrepresented minority pre-docs, post-docs, and junior faculty through career development and core human subjects research with an emphasis on heath equity methods.

SPARK Program: The Students Participating as Ambassadors for Research in Kentucky (SPARK) program provides undergraduate students the opportunity to return to their home communities for health promotion research and practice to promote health equity.
