NIMHD Turns 10

Posted on by Dr. Francis Collins

NIMHD Anniversary Symposium
Happy 10th anniversary to NIH’s National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD). To mark the occasion, the NIMHD held an informative anniversary scientific symposium on March 3, 2020 at NIH that focused on “Innovations to Promote the Health Equity Agenda.” It was my pleasure to take part in the opening session, where I had a chance to pose for this photo with my colleague and NIMHD Director Eliseo Pérez-Stable. Over the past 30 years, NIMHD and its predecessors, along with their partners and collaborators, have proven that health disparities are real. Everyone deserves to live a healthy life, and health disparities challenge our American sense of fairness. Within the next 30 years, a majority of our nation’s population is projected to be non-white. With this coming demographic shift, it’s more important now than ever for researchers to study minority health and health disparities to understand the health of all people. Credit: NIH.

    Congratulations to the NIMHD, USA for turning “10”!!!
    The continued scientific and clinical research efforts of the American contemporaries and senior experts at NIH USA Grants’ offices and allied divisions, including NIMHD, deserve an applause for public health-oriented minority-health-disparities research for early identification of at-risk disease-susceptible population-subsets of genetically and ethnically disparate population-subsets globally.
    Once again, congratulations for turning “10”……………………………………… wishes for productive years ………
