Support research that directly addresses needs of the community trending idea

Research that integrates the community at every stage, from developing research questions, methods and analysis can help to ensure that the questions that are being asked, and the findings, represent the communities they are intended to serve. Research questions are often representative of those that are of interest to the scientist, rather than those affected. As a consequence, diagnoses like sickle cell disease have... more »

Get Localities Involved

There is a foundation that provides funds to institutions that partner with communities as an Institutional Challenge Grant. Since funders often drive research directions I think this could be a way to revolutionize data production towards community partnered solutions. This leads me to three similar ideas to that. 1. Grants for organizations to work with scientists to test and if good outcomes, scale their work. What's... more »

Key Idea, Workshop 2: New qualitative and quantitative measures needed to capture intersectionality

To ensure health disparities research fully captures intersectionality, new assessment tools are needed that are specific to developmental periods and various social identities and that encompass diverse ethnic-racial groups. Qualitative and quantitative research methods are both valid means to capture high quality data.

Key Idea, Workshop 2: Grant process changes can increase funding access for minoritized scientists

Significant changes need to take place at an institutional level to advance health disparities research and methods development, including addressing procedures in the grant review and funding processes that systematically limit minoritized researchers' access to grant funding and leadership roles.

We must encourage applicants to build in specific ideas and resources to address diversity
