National Institutes of Health
The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) convened a Working Group (WG) in Bethesda, MD on September 8, 2017 to discuss current knowledge and future directions for research in thyroid function and cardiovascular disease. Pathophysiologic mechanisms relating these conditions and potential clinical benefits of concurrent management of thyroid and cardiovascular conditions have not been adequately explored using contemporary research methods. The WG brought together scientists with expertise in basic, clinical, and epidemiologic aspects of both thyroid dysfunction and cardiovascular disease. The principal goal was to define key knowledge gaps, in order to outline priorities for future scientific research that might benefit from NHLBI leadership, facilitation, and support.
September 7 - 8, 2017
Bethesda, MD
Nutrition is a major factor in the development of chronic diseases (e.g., obesity, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hypertension, and cancer) and to the improvement of hospitalized patients’ clinical outcomes. Patient adherence to a recommended nutrition plan can reduce the risk of or ameliorate these chronic diseases, especially when initiated early in life. Physicians are typically considered medical gatekeepers, and with other medical professionals (e.g., nurse practitioners) are the trusted authorities that patients seek out for dietary counseling, but many may not be equipped with the necessary evidence-based nutrition research results, knowledge, and relevant competencies and practice skills to initiate counseling and refer to appropriate resources and dietitians.

The NHLBI partnered with several NIH Institutes, Centers, and Offices, as well as the Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) Office of Minority Health to host a workshop titled, “Training the Next Generation of Implementation Researchers for Health Equity.” Findings from the workshop will help inform NHLBI’s Strategic Vision Implementation Plan for health inequities research which can ultimately have significant impact on improving population level health for all.
June 22 to July 23, 2017
The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) convened several experts from a broad range of biomedical, behavioral, environmental, and social science backgrounds to explore community-engaged implementation research strategies for reducing cardiovascular disparities.
