Yale Transdisciplinary Collaborative Center for Health Disparities Research (YALE-TCC)
The Yale Transdisciplinary Collaborative Center for Health Disparities Research Focused on Precision Medicine (YALE-TCC) is a coalition of research institutions and stakeholder member organizations focused on African descent and Hispanic populations living in the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. The YALE-TCC combines different types of data to improve identification of who is at risk for hypertension (HTN) and type 2 diabetes (T2D) sooner than is currently possible. One goal is to identify and test culturally relevant and low resource interventions to reduce the population burden of HTN and T2D and to inform clinical care delivery to individual patients at high risk for these diseases and their consequences. Yale-TCC provides resources to build agency capacity to implement and evaluate an evidence-based intervention to decrease the incidence of diabetes in high risk populations.
