The National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD) will host the Health Disparities Research Institute (HDRI) from August 12-16, 2019, in Bethesda, MD. The HDRI aims to support the research career development of promising minority health/health disparities research scientists early in their careers and stimulate research in the disciplines supported by health disparities science.
The program will feature:
• lectures on minority health and health disparities research
• mock grant review
• seminars and small group discussions
Institute participants will also have the opportunity to meet with NIH scientific staff engaged in related health disparities research across the various NIH Institutes and Centers.
