Michigan Center for
Urban African American Aging Research

RCMAR Coordinating Center (CC)
 
The National Institute on AgingNational Institutes of Health, National Institute of Nursing Research, and the Office of Research in Minority Health created a program to decrease the minority/non-minority differential in health and its social sequelae for older people by focusing research upon health promotion, disease prevention, and disability prevention.
 
In 1997, they established the Resource Centers for Minority Aging Research (RCMAR) initiative as part of the effort to reduce health disparities between minority and non-minority older adults. The RCMAR mission is to decrease these disparities.
 
The UCLA RCMAR Coordinating Center (CC) is designed to work across centers to sustain them as a network, provide common administrative and technical support, and promote their accomplishments to audiences beyond those reached by an individual center.
