In this lecture in the NIH Medicine Mind the Gap series, presenters propose that there is a pressing need for “scientific equity,” or equality in the amount of scientific knowledge that is produced to understand both the potential causes and solutions to many health inequities. The lecture will examine the issue of scientific equity, using prevention interventions as illustrative examples. In addition, key strategies for promoting scientific equity, including conducting more implementation research, utilizing adaptive intervention research designs, and promoting collaborative data synthesis work will be described. http://prevention.nih.gov/mindthegap/
