The National Institute for Mental Health (NIMH) James Jackson Memorial Award recognizes an outstanding researcher who has demonstrated exceptional individual achievement and leadership in mental health disparities research and excellence in mentorship, influence, and support of trainees.

This award and lecture are named in honor of the late Dr. James Jackson, who was the Daniel Katz Distinguished Professor of Psychology at the University of Michigan. Dr. Jackson’s research on race, ethnicity, racism, health, and mental health has had far-reaching impacts on the fields of disparities research and minority mental health.

This interactive webinar will feature the award winner’s research lecture, audience Q&A session, and remarks from NIMH senior leadership, the Disparities Team, the previous year’s winner, and Dr. Jackson’s family.
