Latin America: Synergizing Health Research Across the Hemisphere
Synergizing Health Research on Non-communicable Diseases Among U.S. Hispanic/Latino and Latin American Populations Across the Hemisphere
The Lancet Regional Health – Americas
Virtual workshop conducted November 1-2, 2022
In order to accomplish its mission to lead scientific research to improve minority health and reduce health disparities, NIMHD translates and disseminates relevant research information. This workshop is a platform to discuss research opportunities to reduce health and health care disparities related to non-communicable diseases (NCDs) with the highest disease burden and mortality in Latin America and among U.S. Hispanic/Latino populations.
Experts in diverse disciplines will share advances, challenges, best practices, and lessons learned in clinical, health services/health systems, and community-engaged research related to NCDs conducted throughout Latin America.
A central interest of the workshop is to discuss current and potential research strategies and other perspectives in countries from which most U.S. Hispanics/Latinos identify their heritage, resulting in mutual benefit to both U.S. Hispanic/Latino communities and Latin America.
