The 2021-22 fiscal year marks the fifth year that Delta Research and Educational Foundation (DREF) has been selected by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for the health initiative, Research Matters for All of Us Program. The NIH has awarded funding to DREF to focus on community engagement, empowerment, research, and enrollment. DREF is leading the national effort to educate African Americans about the significant role biomedical research plays in addressing health disparities.

The DREF awareness campaign entitled, “Research Matters:  Creating Possibilities to Achieve Health and Wellness for All of Us” focuses on the objective of creating awareness about how research matters in closing the health disparities gap.  African Americans continue to have the highest incidence, prevalence, and mortality rates from chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, hypertension, mental health, and HIV/AIDS, yet they contribute to only five percent of clinical trial participants in America.
