Equality State Research Network

A Wyoming Community and Practice Based Research Network

The Equality State Research Network (ESRN) is a statewide network committed to engaging in community-based research to improve the overall health of Wyoming residents. The ESRN incorporates community engagement, quality improvement, and scientific inquiry.

ESRN Overview

Our Mission

The Equality State Research Network is a community and practice based research network that brings healthcare communities from around the state together to identify important community health and education challenges and to develop innovative research that addresses those challenges. This consortium of research partners may include, but is not limited to: primary healthcare practices, child development centers, school-based providers, specialty care, and other community professionals. These groups will be working with the University of Wyoming, who provides the infrastructure and guidance necessary to develop research that addresses the unique needs of Wyoming’s rural and frontier communities.

The Equality State Research Network has awarded two grants to support community-based participatory research focusing on improving the health and well-being of Wyoming residents. Learn more about the recipients.

ESRN Student Research Awards

The College of Health Sciences (CHS) through the Wyoming Institute for Disabilities (WIND) received a grant from the Heywood Foundation to support up to six (6) student research awards - 3 graduate student awards of $2,000 and 3 undergraduate student awards of $1,500. Developed in partnership with CHS interdisciplinary faculty, student proposals must focus on innovations related to telehealth and rural healthcare to meet the needs of Wyoming residents.
