Southeastern CTSA Consortium (SECC)

Our Purpose...

To strengthen each CTSA's work on common health and research concerns through collaboration on activities that address health problems confronting the southeastern United States. The Southeastern CTSA Consortium (SECC) is made up of eight CTSAs in six southeastern states.

At a face-to-face meeting held in early 2010, the SECC discussed two projects that sites will colaborate on in the coming year:

  • Use and sharing of electronic medical data for clinical research
  • Addressing health disparities in the South
