National Institutes of Health Cultural and Qualitative Research Interest Group

Cultural and Qualitative Research Interest Group

The Cultural and Qualitative Research Interest Group is organized to promote awareness of the impact of culture, ethnicity, racial categories, and class on public health research. Goals include encouraging the use of theory based conceptualization of these terms and their inclusion as variables in NIH and NIH-sponsored research.

The group recognizes the importance of both qualitative and quantitative research methods in this area. To this end, the group acts to promote greater awareness of appropriate and rigorous qualitative methods in research on health and disease.  The group moderator is Martha Hare.
