Leadership Core

Lead, recruit, and coordinate the AIM-AHEAD Consortium

Broadening the diversity of data for AI/ML applications, as well as the diversity of researchers engaged in AI/ML applications is a cornerstone of the AIM-AHEAD program. The A-CC will establish trusted partnerships with institutions and organizations that have a core mission to serve underrepresented or underserved groups impacted by health disparities, as well as trusted relationships among these groups as the foundation for the AIM-AHEAD consortium. It’s important that the A-CC take an inclusive approach and not focus on any particular underrepresented or underserved group.
