NINR welcomes Dr. Bridgett Rahim-Williams, Senior Research Fellow at the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD), for a one-year collaborative fellowship. Dr. Rahim-Williams will conduct research under the mentorship of NINR’s Dr. Wendy Henderson, who is a tenure track investigator in the Biobehavioral Branch within NINR’s Division of Intramural Research.  Dr. Rahim-Williams comes to NINR through the Disparities Research and Education Advancing Our Mission (DREAM) Career Transition Award, which she was awarded in 2010.

Dr. Rahim-Williams’ research examines several areas of minority women's health and health disparities associated with chronic disease comorbidity, with a particular interest in HIV/AIDS, type 2 diabetes, cancer, and pain. Her NINR intramural project will focus on HIV/AIDS comorbidity (e.g. diabetes, cancer) symptom management, and health-related quality of life among women.
