VIRTUAL: NIH NINDS Health Disparities and Inequities in Neurological Disorders Workshop

Event Details


Registration is now open for the upcoming NIH NINDS HEADWAY Health Disparities and Inequities in Neurological Disorders Workshop. The event will be held virtually from September 22nd through 24th from 12-5 pm ET daily. A detailed agenda is available on the event website. This workshop is open to all, including patients, caregivers, advocates, researchers, healthcare providers, industry, etc.

NIH NINDS (The U.S. National Institutes of Health’s National Institute on Neurological Disorders and Stroke) “is committed to reducing the disproportionate burden of neurological disease borne by underserved groups of society, including race/ethnic, sex/gender minorities, rural, disabled and socioeconomically disadvantaged populations, by funding a spectrum of research from basic through implementation science, and training the next generation of health disparities investigators.

In 2020, the NINDS Office of Global Health and Health Disparities within the Division of Clinical Research, in collaboration with the Office of Science Policy and Planning, embarked on a strategic planning process to address health disparities and inequities in neurological disorders through research.  As a culmination of the strategic planning process, NINDS is hosting a Health Disparities and Inequities in Neurological Disorders Workshop (HEADWAY).

The goal of the HEADWAY workshop is to identify evidence-based interventions that are feasible and widely scalable, to diminish disparities and inequities in neurological disorders.  This workshop will assemble subject matter experts in various disciplines from clinical and health services researchers, to implementation and behavioral scientists, along with community stakeholders and patient advocates. Findings and recommendations from the workshop and strategic planning process will be placed on the NINDS website and used as resources for setting priorities and developing initiatives over the next 5 – 10 years.
