African Americans have disproportionately high incidences of disease, illness, and death, an important reason for their inclusion in ongoing research. The AAHN provides support and guidance for researchers who wish to collaborate with the African American community. The AAHN endorses 6 fundamental keys to successful recruitment and retention of diverse population groups: (1) historical cognizance; (2) sanctioning; (3) trust-building; (4) mutuality; (5) recognition of heterogeneity; and (6) researcher self-reflection and introspection.
