USC Faculty Mentors

CenHealth USC Faculty Mentors will work directly with students that are part of the Ambassadors Brigade Fellowship Program.  Together they will conduct health equity research in collaboration with an international partner in the Americas.  Each faculty mentor will be selected based a proposed research project focusing on health equity.

If you are currently a USC professor and is conducting or is interested in conducting health equity research in the Americas, you are eligible to apply to be part of the CenHealth USC faculty mentors. For more information, please contact Yaneth Rodriguez either by email, or by phone, 323-442-8210.
