As a premiere, respected, and innovative nexus of trans-disciplinary partners, our charge is to inform and increase the knowledge base of the benefits of HIT among underserved populations, with an emphasis on communities of color and those who care for them. Our goal is to ensure that no community is left behind.

Here you will find a collection of relevant news articles, press releases, announcements, and updates on data and research releases that target our populations of focus and highlight the benefits of HIT in eliminating health disparities. You can also easily search and find this information in the NHIT Resource Library.
