The National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD) is hosting a Health Disparities Research Institute starting today, August 15th to 19th, 2016.
The Institute aims to foster individual research projects of promising scientists and motivated research scholars with the overall goal to stimulate innovative research in the minority health and health disparities sciences. Please forward this message to anyone who may be interested in applying.
What the Health Disparities Research Institute Is: This program provides a unique opportunity for early career researchers, interested in addressing health disparities and minority health research, to learn about the latest science and receive guidance on their own research projects from leaders in the field.
Who Should Apply: Early career investigators, including postdoctoral researchers, research associates and assistant professors, engaged in health disparities and minority health research are encouraged to apply. We seek participants from diverse backgrounds within and outside of academia, such as from community-based and nonprofit organizations.
Cost: There is no cost, but admission is competitive and participants are required to attend all daily sessions. Participants are responsible for arranging their own transportation, room, and board. Limited scholarships will be available to cover travel expenses based on need. Applicants from diverse backgrounds, including underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, who require financial assistance are always encouraged to apply for NIH support.
