About This Event

Presented by RaNaja Kennedy, Senior Community Engagement Coordinator, Leah Mckown and Zylphia Ford, Community Engagement Coordinators

Integrating populations historically excluded from biomedical research is essential if we seek generalizable study findings. But the long and tragic history of research abuses inflicted on some of these populations leads to marked resistance to participation. Building trust in community is the most critical part in engaging those harder-to-reach participants. This session will review some of the historic crimes inflicted upon "othered" populations and discuss ways to authentically and intentionally build trust moving forward. (subject matter: safe research environments)
