The Center for Research on Ethnicity, Culture and Health (CRECH) was established in 1998 at the University of Michigan School of Public Health (UMSPH) to lead the School's response to dramatic changes in the racial and ethnic composition of the United States. CRECH develops new approaches to research and research training relevant to the description and understanding of racial and ethnic health disparities. CRECH prepares students to address the public health needs of an increasingly diverse society by providing a forum for basic and applied research on racial and ethnic differences in health across all departments within the UMSPH. Currently, there are two components of the CRECH diversity training programs: The CRECH Doctoral Training Program, and the Paul B. Cornely Postdoctoral Program in Ethnicity, Culture and Health.
