Direct attention and resources toward research on the multi-layered determinants of U.S. adult health and longevity, with a focus on how state and local contexts—separately and collectively—shape trends and disparities in adult health and longevity across the life course.
Strategically grow the interdisciplinary Network of emerging, established, and underrepresented scientists who will collaborate to investigate the key scientific questions.
Provide development and training opportunities for Network scientists via pilot grants, grant proposal mentoring, working groups, and annual meetings.
Develop and disseminate data and analytic resources to foster innovative research on the key scientific questions and advance science in this critical area.
