The leading causes of death and risk factors for death in the U.S. are underrepresented in prevention research funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), according to a recent portfolio analysis completed by the NIH Office of Disease Prevention. Attendees will discuss the challenges of studying multiple leading causes or risk factors in prevention research, and examples of success in this area. Attendees will also discuss challenges with designing preventive interventions that target multiple risk factors and/or diseases, and again examples of success in this area. The session will conclude with a discussion of emerging areas of prevention science that might push prevention research advanced into public health.
