NIMHD Announces New Textbook
NIMHD recently announced the release of a new textbook, The Science of Health Disparities Research, edited by Drs. Irene Dankwa-Mullan, Eliseo J. Pérez-Stable, Kevin L. Gardner, Xinzhi Zhang and Adelaida M. Rosario. The publication is now available in bookstores.
Building upon the advances in health disparities research over the past decade, this new textbook will serve as a reference to scientists developing a research program focused on health disparities research.
These strategies will inform policies and practices addressing the diseases, disorders and gaps in health outcomes that are more prevalent in minority populations and socially disadvantaged communities.
In 26 chapters, the book describes how using an interdisciplinary approach can reduce inequities in population health studies, the importance of relying on community engagement for much of the research process, and the ways that rigorous research can promote social justice.
The Science of Health Disparities Research is an essential resource for trainees and clinical researchers in health services, behavioral science, population science, public health and basic science as it intersects with clinical studies; health care policymakers and epidemiologists; and those working with minority, vulnerable or underserved populations.
