UAMS Awarded $7 Million For Minority Health Disparities Research

LITTLE ROCK — The Arkansas Center for Health Disparities at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) has been awarded a $7 million National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant for research on minority health disparities, including reducing tobacco smoke exposure among children in the Delta and studying HIV prevention among incarcerated African-Americans.

The grant was awarded by the NIH’s National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities.

The center, housed in the UAMS Fay W. Boozman College of Public Health, is one of 12 specialized research centers funded in the country to conduct multidisciplinary research, research training, and community engagement activities to improve minority health and reduce health disparities. The grant will support pilot studies to help junior faculty compete for larger grants and train the next generations of researchers.      MORE
