|Global Transdisciplinary Research Collaboration on the Health of the Caribbean Diaspora|
The Harvard Medical School, Office for Diversity and Community Partnership; the National Cancer Institute (NCI), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH); and the Pan American Health Organization, Office of Caribbean Program Coordination partnered to host the meeting, Global Transdisciplinary Research Collaboration on the Health of the Caribbean Diaspora, held in Boston, Massachusetts, June 23-24, 2008.
The goal of this meeting was to deepen the understanding of the root causes and social determinants of health, as applicable to the Caribbean Diaspora, and to strengthen the capacity of mainland U.S. and Caribbean researchers to collaborate, report, and publish on health issues with an emphasis on the social determinants of health, from a global perspective. Researchers from the Caribbean region and the US who were representative of the disciplines of finance, economics, public health, medicine, sociology and nursing met to identify ways of working collaboratively to address issues relevant to the determinants of health and the translation for policy development and implementation.
The objectives of this meeting were to increase participants’ knowledge of transdisciplinary science and social determinants of health, and their understanding of translational research and how it applies across several indicators. The meeting also identified new opportunities for collaboration and partnerships between Caribbean and US researchers, along with an understanding of how to leverage resources from various funding agencies, and how to develop career paths in research.
