NEW Research Opportunity from NIA! RFA-AG-23-004

A new NIA - NIMHD request for applications was announced:

Understanding Place-Based Health Inequalities in Mid-Life (RFA-AG-23-004)

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to support research that uncovers potential modifiable explanations about how “places” (e.g., countries, US Census regions, states, counties, neighborhoods, and locations across the urban-rural continuum) are related to morbidity and mortality among middle-aged adults in order to inform policy responses to address poor mid-life health and health disparities. Specifically, this FOA will support studies that: 1) clarify social, economic, behavioral, and institutional explanations for place-based health disparities (levels and trends), 2) examine intersections between place and sociodemographic characteristics (e.g., gender, race, ethnicity) to better understand and address processes driving other health disparities, and/or 3) include data collection and data enhancements to support 1 and 2.
