It is well understood that urban black males are at a disproportionately high risk of poor health outcomes. But little is known about how the neighborhood environments where these men live contribute to their health.
As a worldwide leader in interdisciplinary and nursing research, the work of our faculty and students is advancing science and delivering solutions that impact every aspect of health and health care.
The Office of Nursing Research, along with our four research centers and partnerships across Penn, provide students and faculty with resources and support that are virtually unparalleled in our field.
Every day the research produced here shapes policy, promotes better healthcare, helps prevent disease, improves quality of life, eliminates health disparities, and develops the scientific knowledge that drives nursing practice.
