Jacksonville Health Equity Research Organization's mission is to conduct community-based research in order to improve the quality of care and promote health equity for persons living in Northeast Florida.

JaxHERO provides the foundation for translational and evidence-based research focused on studying and reducing health disparities while building on institutional commitments to the underserved population.

The Jacksonville Health Equity Research Organization objectives are as follows:

  • Create a diverse network, comprising clinicians, patients and community stakeholders that fosters collaborative research
  • Conduct research to reduce health disparities and increase health equity
  • Educate network members, clinical staff, and patients to increase participation in research
  • Disseminate findings to network members, patients and community stakeholders to develop a research agenda and determine future research topics

With primary care centers from the University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville and the Duval County Health Department, the JaxHERO network provides access to a large number of patients from underserved communities and who experience a disproportionate burden of morbidity from diseases such as diabetes, stroke, cardiovascular disease and mental illness. More information about the JaxHERO network is available in the Executive Summary Report.

The Jacksonville Health Equity Research Organization enables us to conduct translational research in a wide range of setting, thereby bringing the benefits of medical innovation to our entire community.
