Michigan Center for Urban African American Aging Research-Bridge Funds

a PSC Research Project

Investigators:   James S. Jackson, Jamie Mitchell, Robert J. Taylor, Toni C. Antonucci, Amy M. Pienta, Jacqui E. Smith

The mission of the Michigan Center for Urban African American Aging Research (MCUAAAR) is to generate knowledge that will reduce health disparities and improve health. To fulfill this mission, MCUAAAR pursues twin goals of increasing the number of highly trained African American aging researchers, and including more elderly African American subjects in health disparities research.

In the coming year, MCUAAAR will 1) recruit and mentor 15 new junior scholars into the area of aging and health research; 2) increase important research on health and health promotion among older adults of ethnic and racial populations, especially African Americans; and 3) extend research on the recruitment and retention of African American elders in health via our large Participant Registry. Throughout their training, our mentees have unlimited access to our Participant Registry, a research subject pool of 1,500-plus minority subjects built over nearly a decade following a Community-Based Participatory Model.

Funding Period: 08/01/2017 to 06/30/2018
