Leveraging Existing Data and Analytic Methods For Health Disparities Research Related to Aging and Alzheimer's Disease and Related Dementias

Our objective is to host two series of workshops, in which research findings and evidence-based information and analytic tools for analyses of health-related disparities in Alzheimer’s disease, related dementias and other prominent age-related diseases are discussed.

Specific Aims to be addressed in this project will be focused on:

  • increasing collaboration and partnership in an interdisciplinary research community focused on analytic methods for large-scale population and clinic-related data
  • constructing a bridge between independent research subgroups
  • identifying ways to achieve synergistic effects in multidisciplinary research by combining innovative approaches developed across different research groups

Ultimately, our long-term goal is to diffuse the active use of advanced analytic methods for analyses of existing big health population datasets in health disparity research.

The workshop is sponsored by the National Institute on Aging, Grant No. 5R13AG069381.
