Google’s Health Equity Research Initiative
Google Health, Google Cloud Platform, Fitbit, and Fitabase are partnering to advance health equity and mitigate health disparities. Researchers at academic institutions and nonprofit research institutions in the United States were invited to submit their health equity research proposals to the Google Health Equity Research Initiative, for an opportunity to receive awards for funding, Google and Fitbit wearable devices, Fitabase services, and/or Google Cloud Platform credits. The objective of the Initiative is to advance health equity research and improve health outcomes for groups disproportionately impacted by health disparities and/or negative social and structural determinants of health.
