Transformative Health Disparities Research Scientific Meetings

Register Now To Participate In The Transformative Health Disparities Research Community Listening Sessions Series

We invite you to participate in the NIH Common Fund’s Transformative Health Disparities Research Community Listening Sessions Series. We want you to share your perspectives on opportunities, challenges, and community needs related to interventions targeting social determinant factors that influence health disparities including education, healthcare, financial resources, neighborhood environments, and social context. Specifically, we are interested in hearing ideas for innovative approaches to this type of research in which community members are actively engaged in the research process.

The listening sessions series will bring together members from various stakeholder groups including community-based organizations, tribal communities and organizations, faith-based organizations, advocacy organizations, professional societies, foundations, colleges and universities to help identify new solutions and inform a coordinated program of health disparities and health equity research supported through the NIH Common Fund. 
This series is hosted by the NIH Common Fund’s  Transformative Research to Address Health Disparities and Advance Health Equity Initiative working group.
