The Core Minority Health and Health
Disparities Research Seminar Series
The Core Minority Health and Health Disparities Research Seminar is a quarterly, cross-institutional series aimed at bringing together trainees, investigators and communities to:
- Define key issues across the broad range of minority health and health disparities research,
- Share issues and challenges in designing and executing research,
- Introduce new methods, approaches, and opportunities,
- Foster collaborations and partnerships, and
- Host presentations by outstanding investigators.
The seminars generally consist of panel presentations with a strong emphasis on community engagement. The seminars are also designed to be interactive discussion forums.
The CEHD, Georgetown-Howard Universities Center for Clinical and Translational Science (GHUCCTS), and the University-wide Initiative to Reduce Health Disparities are proud to co-sponsor this series.
Please stay tuned for an announcement about our 2015 series!
