                Day 1: SOCIAL DETERMINANTS OF HEALTH

                Day 2: HARNESSING BASIC SCIENCE TO UNDERSTAND RACIAL DISPARITIES AND THE IMPACT OF RACISM 

Workshop Description 

The goals of this virtual meeting are to discuss research gaps on racial inequities in substance use and addiction and to inform NIDA’s commitment to this area by identifying short- and long-term plans for enhancing the research portfolio. Discussion will center on research in areas where there are known racial/ethnic inequities; and where research has the greatest potential to reduce those disparities. These include, but are not limited to, persistent health disparities related to substance use, addiction, and related outcomes; a lack of attention to research questions most salient to underrepresented communities; and existing system bias in the scientific enterprise. The overarching goal of the Research Gaps and Opportunities Workgroup is to engage the scientific community in identifying research priorities that can inform NIDA programs/funding opportunities and ultimately reduce health disparities and improve outcomes.
