Innovative Transformational Research to Reduce Health Disparities and Advance Health Equity in Diabetes

Funding Agency:
American Diabetes Association

The American Diabetes Association is soliciting research to provide critical funding toward transformational and translatable research to enhance minority health and reduce health disparities to improve the lives of people living with diabetes and its complications. For this funding opportunity, attention must focus on, and all hypotheses should reflect, the impact of race/ethnicity, socioeconomic status, health care access, and/or other direct factors that underlie diabetes health disparities, and describe how results will transform assessment and treatment of underserved groups and address significantly improved outcomes in diabetes or its complications. We encourage formative research, intervention development, and/or pilot-testing of interventions.

For the purposes of this RFA, we encourage interventions that include behavioral, social, or structural approaches, as well as combination biomedical and behavioral approaches that prevent and/or improve clinical outcomes for persons living with diabetes or it’s complications.
