Our Mission

The Health Justice Informatics Lab at the University of Michigan is dedicated to using community-based informatics methods to detect, understand, and reduce health, information and technology inequities among marginalized communities. We strive to build equitable partnerships with community members and institutional partners to co-create information tools, interventions, resources, and programs that improve the health and well-being of marginalized communities.
