Notice of Special Interest (NOSI): Addressing the Etiology of Health Disparities and Health Advantages Among Immigrant Populations

Application Due Date
Brief Description

The purpose of the immigrant health initiative is to support innovative research to understand factors uniquely associated with the immigration experience that contribute to health disparities or health advantages among U.S. immigrant populations. This includes but is not limited to risk/protective factors associated with immigration processes from influences that spur migration from the sending country, through the experience of immigration, to the experience of resettlement, short- and long-term residence in the U.S. and the process of acculturation that affects the health of U.S. immigrant populations (particularly agricultural workers, first generation immigrants, and children of immigrant families). For this Notice of Special Interest (NOSI), the term "1st generation" refers to people who were born outside of the U.S. and its territories and relocated to the U.S. The term "2nd generation" refers to the U.S. born children of 1st generation immigrants.
