AJPH special issue coverCCHE would like to alert you to a special issue of the American Journal of Public Health (AJPH) ~

The AJPH 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.

In this special supplement funded by the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities, AJPH presents research and perspectives focused on expanding methodological approaches to monitor and reduce health disparities for minority populations.

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.
