New book addresses need for racial diversity in elderly research

The Gerontological Society of America, the oldest national organization devoted to aging research, has just released its latest publication, The Science of Inclusion: Recruiting and Retaining Racial and Ethnic Elders in Health Research. The volume, edited by Leslie Curry, PhD and James Jackson, PhD, features 11 articles on the importance of minorities in elderly scientific studies. It boasts a preface by Dr. Vivian Pinn of the National Institutes of Health's Office of Research on Women's Health.

The book addresses numerous facets of the research process as it relates to minority groups. The chapters address diverse populations historically underrepresented in health-related research, including older African American and Latino men and women. Barriers to recruitment and retention of ethnic minorities in research are examined in the context of clinical trials, health services research, and survey research.

The need for the inclusion of women and diverse ethnic groups in health research and clinical trials has become widely accepted in the biomedical community. As we experience an increasingly racially and ethnically diverse older population, it is critical that health researchers develop effective models to ensure participation of this changing population.

The Science of Inclusion addresses a broad range of considerations in the recruitment and retention of historically underrepresented groups, including identification of barriers to participation in research and strategies for overcoming them in clinical, health services and survey research.
