Trans-NIH collaboration with NIOSH initiates studies of racial and ethnic disparities in health

The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, in collaboration with six other National Institutes of Health components, and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, today announced 12 five-year projects that will provide scientists with a better understanding of how social and physical environmental factors interact to impoverish the health of racial and ethnic minorities.

The total funding for these grants is approximately $33 million over the five-year period. NIEHS coordinated the grants and the NIH participation and provided $3.8 million of the initial, first year $6.6 million. The partnership is the first trans-NIH collaboration designed to address the Department of Health and Human Services' Initiative to Eliminate Racial and Ethnic Disparities in Health.

Other NIH participants are the National Institute on Aging, the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases, the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, the National Institute of Mental Health, and the Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research. The NIH effort was assisted by its Office of Research on Minority Health, which sponsored a series of health disparities workshops during the developmental stages of the new research initiative.

The National Instititute of Occupational Safety and Health, or NIOSH, is a part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention within the Department of Health and Human Services .

The principal investigators who are receiving these grants are listed below:

Redford B. Williams at Duke University Medical Center, Durham, N.C., will study a cohort of individuals who are care givers for spouses with Alzheimer's Disease to determine how the stress of being a care giver, along with other socially-related stressors can contribute to negative health behaviors. The investigators also hope to determine whether these
