Projects & Industry Partners

Meeting with potential CHOT membersOur Projects

The University of Louisville is currently working with eight organizations on nine industry driven projects:

Community Health Improvement Network (CHIN)

Project participants will participate in year 2 of a collaborative health improvement network (CHIN) for type II diabetes patients driven by consumer-owned and controlled data. Each project participant will have an opportunity to invite a set of consumers and caregivers to participate in a series of online activities to engage consumers and those who support their health and care.

Emotional Well-being

Utilize the UofL Center for Creative Placehealing (CCP) model to support a culturally-responsive process in Louisville's Smoketown neighborhood designed by IDEAS xLab to cultivate youth leadership, hope, and emotional well-being. The project will support IDEAS xLab’s work with young people from the Louisville Youth Group (LGBTQ), Meyzeek Middle School Justice League and Bates Kingdom Academy: A Freedom School who will select and collaborate with artists who have the lived the diverse experiences of the young people. 

Advancements in Social Determinants of Health

Research has consistently shown that where and how people live is equally, if not more, influential than clinical care on individuals' lives. Therefore, It is vital to understand where research stands with regard to key social factors and the efficacy of related interventions. This project will review the literature around identified social determinants of health to uncover evidence-based best practices, assess population health baseline data, and conduct initial social network analyses in funded project communities.
