SPOTLIGHT ON BLACK MEN’S RESEARCH PARTICIPATION

 

Older African American men have historically been underrepresented in health research. We want to highlight some of the important and more recent health innovations and discoveries related specifically to African American or Black men’s health. As new research becomes available, particularly research that arises from a sample of the HBE Participant Resource Pool or Registry, we will put it here. We will also continually add tools and resources to encourage research participation among older Black men.
