AJPH publishes New Perspectives to Advance Minority Health and Health Disparities Research
"The American Journal of Public Health special issue New Perspectives to Advance Minority Health and Health Disparities Research is the culmination of a 2-year NIMHD-led transdisciplinary science visioning process that bridged scientific disciplines to develop a coordinated research vision. The special issue includes analytic essays and editorials that cover harmonizing health disparities measurement, leveraging the data-rich world, addressing social determinants of health; designing structural, behavioral, and multilevel interventions, and building an evidence base to adapt interventions for health disparity populations. Other covered topics include methodologies to understand causes, importance of a life course perspective, and key biological mechanisms that link social exposure to chronic diseases. This special issue is introduced by NIMHD Director Eliseo J. Pérez-Stable, M.D, and NIH Director Francis S. Collins, M.D., Ph.D., in an Editor’s Choice editorial. "
