CHEER aims to promote interdisciplinary and inter-institutional collaboration with researchers and community members throughout Memphis. In an effort to promote health equity and educate members of the community, CHEER hosts monthly seminars at locations throughout the city. These seminars feature speakers from a variety of backgrounds who are working to eliminate health disparities. CHEER seminars invite the community, students, researchers, health professionals, and all who are interested to attend our seminars. The seminars are free and open to the public.
