The race variable in research has been the topic of debate in both research and clinical realms. The tension surrounding the discourse of the use of race in research stem from the difficulties in defining race, the limitations of the variable, and the implications for health and racial equity. In this review, we dissect the challenges faced when incorporating race into research and offer a guide for incorporating race in research in a manner that promotes racial and health equity.
