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

d socioeconomic disparity in the risk of cardiovascular disease. This project will be undertaken in partnership with community-based organizations and healthcare institutions in Detroit.

Carlos Mendes de Leon at the Rush-Presbyterian St. Luke Medical Center, Chicago, Ill., will test whether greater biological risk factors and adverse neighborhood conditions can lead to disparities in disability in older people. Age-related disability is considered to be the most important measure of overall health status in the elderly, and a major cause of poor quality of life at that age.

Marilyn A. Winkleby at Stanford University in California will assess the role of the neighborhood environment and other individual risk factors in predicting deaths, including those from cardiovascular disease. These potential risk factors include neighborhood socioeconomic status, social disorganization, Hispanic concentration, crime rate, housing conditions, availability of goods and services, educational resources and recreational facilities.
