Project Description

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) prevention in Central America requires understanding how social determinants and place-based factors influence cardiovascular risk across the lifespan. It is critical to train and mentor the local workforce in identifying research questions relevant to CVD prevention, in the use of appropriate research methods to answer them, and in the dissemination of results to the scientific community, the public, and policy makers. Building on an established collaboration between Institute for Nutrition of Central America and Panama (INCAP) and Drexel University, our training program will develop the research capabilities of trainees from the region and to build local capacity in the conduct of policy-relevant research on social determinants of cardiovascular risk across the lifespan.
