P20 Center for Precision Health in Diverse Populations

Our mission is to promote nursing research in metabolic syndrome (MetS) and related multiple chronic conditions (MCC). The Center allows for more individualized care and to extend nursing science by offering biomarker, genetic/genomic, biobehavioral, lifestyle, and environmental explanations that will inform nursing care for diverse populations with symptoms of MetS.

 

Center Aims:

  • Promote innovative nursing research in MetS and related MCC: its complexity, relatedness, biodiversity, and impact for individuals and families using a precision health ecological perspective.
  • Develop and sustain a research infrastructure of resources to support and accelerate early career scientists in exploring MetS and related MCC.
  • Facilitate development of sustainable interdisciplinary collaborative teams dedicated to building the science of MCC from a precision health ecological perspective.
