The HBCU PRIDE Program is designed to train and mentor underrepresented minority early career faculty by enhancing their skills in research, grant writing, and scientific writing. It is expected that the work of HBCU PRIDE will result in an increased number of underrepresented minority faculty having independent research careers focused on obesity disparities and chronic diseases related to obesity.
