About This Event

Presented by Maya Ragavan, MD, MPH, MS, Assistant Professor of Pediatrics, Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh and Patricia I. Documet, MD, DrPH, Associate Professor, Behavioral and Community Health Sciences Director, Doctoral Program, Latinx Research and Outreach Director, Center for Health Equity, University of Pittsburgh

This session will provide an introduction to equitably including communities whose primary language is not English into research. Inclusion of non-English speaking communities is essential to promoting health equity and ensuring that our work centers the perspectives of the growing immigrant and non-English speaking communities in Pittsburgh. Objectives of this RCR include: 1) understanding the inclusion of non-English speaking communities into clinical and translational research, from a health equity and anti-racist perspective; 2) reviewing best practices for translations; and 3) building bilingual and bicultural research teams. (subject matter: human participants)
