The UCSF Center for Aging in Diverse Communities (CADC) is a NIA supported RCMAR dedicated to understanding and reducing health disparities among older racial/ethnic and sexual & gender minority (SGM) populations.  Our primary purpose is to train and mentor talented, underrepresented junior investigators to develop independent research careers focused on health disparities and aging issues.  We do this primarily through our Scholar Training program.  We also provide resources for health disparities researchers focused on career development, research methods, conducting community and clinical intervention studies, and developing self-report measures.  


CADC is unique. We combine the broad diversity of the San Francisco Bay Area; top-notch underrepresented investigators who represent that diversity and are building research careers in aging health disparities; a multidisciplinary environment with clinical, community, social, behavioral, epidemiological, cognitive neuroscience, qualitative, and quantitative scientists providing mentoring and training; and our many community partners.
