Goal 3: Advance Translational Research

Improving heart, lung, blood, sleep Health Outcomes for Minority and Underserved Men

What are the best strategies to improve implementation of evidence-based practices (EBP) to enhance effective health risk communication strategies among racial and ethnic minority males and underserved men?


Examples of several issues that need to be addressed are:

• Need for better definition of the role of families/communities in EBP (as co-therapists).

• Requires less system fragmentation

• Need for improved measurement, methodology, and data analyses ‘systems tools’ to establish and refine integrative dynamic conceptual models to address health inequities.

• Continued building of trust among health disparity populations and medical and research communities.
