Funding Agency:
National Institutes of Health

The National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD) is considering establishing new Centers of Excellence on Environment and Health Disparities with potential Federal partners. These interdisciplinary Centers will lead to new evidence-based strategies for alleviating system drivers of racial and socioeconomic disparities in environmentally mediated health outcomes (environmental health) and access to health and sustainable environments.

The goal of this Request for Information (RFI) is to seek public comment on research topics and approaches these Centers could adopt in conducting the research for consideration in the development and implementation of these Centers.  Information obtained via this RFI will help to improve the design of the Centers and ensure utility and productivity, and overall value to the scientific community and the public health.
