Description: The goal of this forum is to bring together experts to identify knowledge gaps and research opportunities that can facilitate the prevention and future treatment interventions of HLS disease outcomes among AI/AN/NH youth. The forum will focus on modifiable risk factors that contribute to morbidity and mortality due to HLS diseases among this minority demographic. Evidence of epidemiological risk exists in older AI/AN/NH populations, but not the younger populations. AI/AN/NH children exhibit a poor health trajectory entering adulthood and these disease pathways remain unknown. The causes must be elucidated to provide the evidence base on which medicine and policy can “bend the curve”. The working group will provide a forum for discussion of research gaps and promising opportunities/recommendations for future research in AI/AN/NH youth. Interventions and approaches for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cardiovascular, pulmonary, and sleep disorders in AI/AN children and adolescents will be explored. Mechanisms and pathways of disease (e.g. genetics, gene-environment interactions) and targeted interventions will also be discussed.
