The Friends of NIMHD is an independent, voluntary coalition launched in 2015 to support the mission of the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities(NIMHD) and its role in national efforts to improve minority health and eliminate health disparities. The Friends of NIMHD serves as a united voice for a broad, diverse network of organizations, institutions, communities, stakeholders, and individuals who care about improving minority health and eliminating health disparities.

The primary mission of the Friends of NIMHD is to advocate on behalf of the Institute during the annual congressional budget and appropriations process. The Friends also promotes awareness and understanding of NIMHD-funded research, training, and workforce activities by sponsoring briefings, outreach to stakeholders, and submitting testimony.

If your association, university, or corporation would like to join this new coalition and receive updates about the Institute and the Friends of NIMHD, please contact Kristin Rosengren.
