Description: In the largest ever population-based study of cardiovascular disease in African Americans, Dr. Taylor and his team are following more than 4,500 Jackson, Mississippi residents to determine how genetic, environmental, and social influences affect their heart health. In his presentation, Dr. Taylor will discuss progress made through the Jackson Heart Study (JHS) in understanding cardiovascular disease. He will also demonstrate how JHS could impact the trajectory of the heart disease epidemic across the United States, emphasizing the importance of translating research findings into effective prevention strategies.

Dr. Taylor is the director and principal investigator of the Jackson Heart Study funded by NHLBI and NIMHD. He is also the Aaron Shirley Professor for the Study of Health Disparities, professor of medicine, and attending physician at the University of Mississippi Medical Center; visiting professor of biology at Tougaloo College; and clinical professor of epidemiology and preventive medicine at Jackson State University. A graduate of Princeton University, Dr. Taylor earned his M.D. from Harvard Medical School, trained in internal medicine at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and completed a cardiology fellowship at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

The National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD) sponsors the monthly NIH Health Disparities Seminar Series. The forum disseminates information on advances, gaps, and current issues related to health disparities research. It features national and international health disparities research experts, including many funded by the NIMHD, the other NIH Institutes and Centers, and federal agency partners. Each seminar focuses on a specific theme.
