 The STRIVE for Change Workshop series, organized by the Health Disparities Research committee, will bring together federal and external stakeholders (e.g., research, community, advocacy organizations) to discuss cross-cutting approaches to health disparities research across populations and the lifespan. The workshop presentations and panel discussions will include individual, family/community, and societal/structural levels of analysis that contribute to health disparities. The workshop series will identify gaps and inform opportunities for new research directions to facilitate health equity.
