IMPACT Training & Mentoring Program


The IMPACT Training and Mentoring Program provides opportunities for San Diego State University undergraduate and masters-level students to participate in a series of educational trainings and mentoring by expert researchers, internship participation in community research, and special research projects focused on minority health and health disparities research.

Two cohorts of twenty San Diego State University students each (30 undergraduate and 10 public health master’s level graduate students total) who are underrepresented in health disparities research will participate in the two-year Training and Mentoring Program.
