Research Centers

MUSM is home to two research centers focused on advancing the mission of the School.

The Center for Rural Health and Health Disparities (CRHHD), led by Dr. Jacob Warren, is dedicated to implementing community-driven solutions to health disparity issues in rural areas of Georgia through innovative research, training and community engagement. The CRHHD is one of only two NIH-designated Centers of Excellence in the nation focused on rural health issues.

The Georgia Rural Health Innovation Center (GRHIC), led by Debra Stokes, was established by the State of Georgia to empower rural communities to improve access and effectiveness of health care through research, collaboration and training opportunities.
