Milestone 4.S

ADRD Specific Milestone

Improve and increase training, including for individuals who are members of under-represented populations, and of different career levels of scholars who conduct health disparities research in AD/ADRD.

Success Criteria

  • Develop an initiative to train AD/ADRD scientists, including from groups that are underrepresented in the biomedical workforce (e.g. but not limited to, racial/ethnic groups, individuals with disabilities, sexual and gender minorities, and individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds), in health disparities research. This initiative should offer opportunities for health disparities training to scientists at all career stages from undergraduate through established senior levels. In addition to subject matter-based training, this initiative should also emphasize training in community engagement methods, mentorship in health disparities research, and training in grant review processes used to evaluate AD/ADRD health disparities research applications.
  • Establish, as a part of this initiative, evaluation criteria and timelines to determine the trajectory and impact, with built in opportunities to adjust to improve outcomes.
