Social Determinants of Chronic Disease Get NIH Attention

JAMA. 2016;316(16):1636. doi:10.1001/jama.2016.15480

Two centers based at Michigan State University and Washington State University will share $20 million over 5 years to address health disparities of chronic disease. The funding is from the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

The NIMHD’s Transdisciplinary Collaborative Centers for Health Disparities Research on Chronic Disease Prevention program, launched in August, is focused on community-based interventions for chronic diseases in racial and ethnic minorities, underserved rural populations, and less privileged socioeconomic-status communities.
