The Center for the Study of Racism, Social Justice & Health is a multidisciplinary, collaborative research center formerly housed in the Department of Community Health Sciences in the Fielding School of Public Health. The Center is distinguished from other disparities-related research units at UCLA and elsewhere by its primary focus on the health implications of racism for diverse populations.

Public Health is both an academic discipline and an applied one. Therefore, the Center encourages the translation of research findings for use by public health professionals, community organizations and policymakers in their ongoing health equity efforts.

Many Center affiliates are working to identify, investigate and explain the specific mechanisms by which various forms of racism may produce local, national or global health inequities. Others are advancing critical racial theories or building community partnerships to guide their anti-racism, health equity work. The Center supports a community of scholars engaged in cutting edge research, scholarship, public health practice, and community engagement to tackle these issues.
