Pathways to Success.
Sloan, Lloyd Ren, Ed.; Starr, B. James, Ed.
Recognizing the need to increase the number of people from ethnically defined populations serving as research scientists in the mental health field, the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) created the Minority Access to Research Careers program in 1979. This program, now known as the Career Opportunities in Research Education and Training (COR), is intended to assist institutions of higher learning with a substantial enrollment of students from ethnically defined populations (African American, Hispanic, American Indian, Asian American) who are underrepresented in science fields relevant to mental health research in the training of a greater number of scientists and teachers. This collection is a compilation of papers from 22 research studies conducted through NIMH-COR programs around the country. The research reports are grouped into the following areas: (1) Mental Health and Cognition; (2) Biobehavioral Research; (3) Psychosocial Research; and (4) Culture and Anthropology. Most of the papers contain references. (SLD)
