Population Studies: Exposome studies and health disparities (Milestone 1.P)

In Progress

Timeline Start - End

2024 - 2025

Research Implementation Area

Population Studies and Precision Medicine

Expand current efforts to address health disparities research questions relevant to AD/ADRD by leveraging new and existing exposome AD/ADRD studies, including the impact of institutional and policy-level drivers of health inequities in AD/ADRD risk (i.e., factors categorized as forms of structural racism).

Success Criteria

  • Develop and promote practical and effective ways to improve population-representativeness of AD/ADRD research resources, ensuring wide-spread inclusivity across all groups, including NIH-designated priority populations (including, but not limited to, race, ethnicity, nativity, gender, immigration status, sexual orientation, gender identity, socioeconomic status).
  • Ensure that AD/ADRD research resources include the collection of data relevant to addressing health disparities research questions relevant to AD/ADRD.
