About Us

The STOP COVID-19 CA project is funded by the National Institutes of Health as part of a nationwide NIH initiative, the Community Engagement Alliance Against COVID-19 Disparities (CEAL), which include community-academic teams in 11 states through the U.S. and focuses on COVID-19 awareness and education research for communities most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The CEAL team in California involves a community-academic network of 11 academic institutions including UC San Diego. UCSD's Altman Clinical and Translational Research Institute administers the NIH funding for the STOP COVID-19 project. Our community partner for this project is the Global Action Research Center
