Determinants of health in immigrant and US-born minority groups

To better understand the health disparities of minority groups in the US, this project will aim to identify social and genetic determinants of health of immigrant communities and US-born minority communities.

Scientific Questions Being Studied

To better understand the health disparities of minority groups in the US, this project will aim to identify social and genetic determinants of health of immigrant communities and US-born minority communities.

Project Purpose(s)

  • Disease Focused Research (common morbidities (diabetes, HT, etc))
  • Population Health
  • Social / Behavioral

Scientific Approaches

Use the Researcher Workbench to identify the most common morbidities of minority communities within the existing datasets; evaluate social components (i.e. check survey-based data) and genetic components that are associated.

Anticipated Findings

We anticipate that the results from our study will identify social and genetic factors that play a role in predisposition and incidence/prevalence of common morbidities of immigrant communities.

Demographic Categories of Interest

  • Race / Ethnicity
  • Age
  • Geography
  • Access to Care
