Session Abstract (150 words): 

The Hampton University Transdisciplinary Collaborative Center (HU-TCC) for research on minority men's health, also known as the Minority Men’s Health Initiative (MMHI), takes a comprehensive approach to narrowing the gender gap of health disparities by harnessing the resources and expertise of Historically Black Colleges and Universities, with a focus on the Southern region of the U.S. Funded by the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the HU-TCC includes eight HBCUs as partner institutions, and is currently in the process of reporting and disseminating research generated from the collaborative in ways that expand their accessibility and availability to research, policy, and practice communities. As MMHI’s lead evaluators, the presenters will describe the activities and lessons learned associated with the ongoing program evaluation of MMHI. Given the complex nature of transdisciplinary collaborative work as reflected in HU-TCC’s 16 research projects, which span not only institutions, but also topics (i.e., cancer, cardiovascular disease, violence prevention, diabetes and obesity, and melanoma in Hispanics), discipline, methodological approach (lab research, community-based, geospatial analysis), and award type (i.e., sub-project, pilot, and seed); this session aims to generate discussion concerning how community-based approaches to translational and transdisciplinary health disparities research can improve health outcomes for minority men.
