The intent of the Health Disparity Research Prostate Scholar Award is to encourage investigators at the Assistant Professor or equivalent level to focus their research efforts on the disparity of prostate cancer within an affected population/community. Appropriate disparity focus areas can include, but are not limited to, race and ethnicity, socio-economic status, access to health care, insurance status, age, geography and/or cultural beliefs. These awards will require the active involvement of a collaborator who is an established prostate cancer researcher. The ultimate goal of these awards is to resolve the health disparity in prostate cancer incidence, morbidity, and mortality. Applicants must demonstrate a connection to, or effectiveness in working with, the affected population/community and must explicitly express how the proposed research is related to a health disparity focus area.
