Summary:
The National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD) seeks to establish specialized Transdisciplinary Collaborative Centers for Health Disparities Research (TCC) that support trans-disciplinary coalitions of academic institutions, community organizations, service providers and systems, government agencies and other stakeholders focused on priority areas in minority health and health disparities. This initiative will support transdisciplinary targeted research, implementation and dissemination activities that transcend customary approaches and “silo” organizational structures to address critical questions at multiple levels in innovative ways.
