Hispanic Health Research Scientific Interest Group
The NIH Hispanic Health Research Scientific Interest Group has been established to foster discussions on Hispanic/Latino health-related research topics. The range of topics is wide and includes (but is not limited to) basic science (e.g., mechanisms of disease that commonly affect Hispanics/Latinos and other populations), epidemiology (e.g., population-based or clinically-based), interventions (e.g., prevention of chronic diseases and/or their complications, and optimal health care and health/clinical outcomes), community-engaged research, translational and implementation research, clinical trials, health education and communication, health services-related research, social sciences, bioethics, and health policy in this diverse population. The ultimate outcomes of these discussions are the translation of knowledge and research into the improvement of the health of Hispanics/Latinos and the general population, the identification of new areas in which research is needed, and the identification of areas or projects through which NIH, HHS or federal agency-wide collaborations could be fostered.
