Join the Community Health Equity & Engagement in Research (CHEER) team on February 28, 2023 from 11AM-12PM (EST) via Zoom for a session that will present the historical context that led to mistrust of research in communities of color, and why that mistrust remains today.
Keynote speaker Hattie McCarter, a Certified DEI Professional and Founder of McCarter's Equitable and Distinctive (MEND) Solutions, will bring her decades-long professional expertise and lived experience to spotlight how systemic racism infiltrates our health systems and research ventures, contributing to health disparities and inequities. Members of the CHEER team will offer insight on how community engagement and researcher education can support inclusivity of underrepresented populations.
