Overview The Institute for Health, Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences, and the substantial resources of Rutgers University offer a rich collaborative environment for conducting research in health disparity and health equity. IFH is the home to a variety of program focused on health disparities and health equity, including NIA funded P30 RCMAR Center. RBHS is home to Rutgers Health Group, New Jersey's largest multi-specialty medical group that includes the state's only NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center, a large behavioral health delivery system, and Robert Wood Johnson Partners, a commercial and Medicare ACO. RBHS partners with RWJBarnabas Health, the state's largest healthcare delivery system for clinical-academic research partnerships. Research among these units expands considerably the opportunities for this position. The Institute for Health has faculty and other researchers with considerable expertise in the health disparity and health equity research, social and clinical sciences, health research and policy, pharmacoepidemiology, public health, and related fields. The faculty have exceptional capacity and decades long history of addressing the most pressing health and healthcare challenges. The Institute and its Survey Data Core is home to considerable expertise in the analysis of large, integrated health-related clinical and administrative datasets, national surveys, Medicaid, Medicare, and private insurance data with the application of social science theory and advanced statistical techniques.
