Yale University is please to announce the establishment of the Yale Transdisciplinary Collaborative Center for Health Disparities Research Focused on Precision Medicine (YALE-TCC). The YALE-TCC is a coalition of research institutions and stakeholder member organizations focused on African descent and Hispanic populations living in the Eastern Caribbean. The YALE-TCC proposes a research portfolio that combines multiple types of data to improve our ability to identify who is at risk for hypertension and type 2 diabetes. Through the coordinated activities of the YALE-TCC, the ultimate goal is to identify and test culturally relevant and low resource interventions to reduce the population burden of hypertension and type 2 diabetes and to inform clinical care delivery to individual patients at high risk for these diseases and their consequences.
