Excerpt: While millions of Americans suffer from illnesses such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and cancers of the breast and prostate, these maladies affect certain population groups more than others, for a host of complex reasons suspected but not confirmed by hard scientific data. Observation of these health disparities (defined as differences in incidence, prevalence, mortality, and burden of disease among specific population groups) led the NIH to fund eight different research centers with a total of $60.5 million over five years to study what factors might mediate the onset or outcomes of these common diseases.
