Building Trust between Minorities and Researchers Workshop to be Held at Maryland

The University of Maryland School of Public Health’s Maryland Center for Health Equity will hold an intensive two-day workshop in June on Building Trust between Minorities and Researchers. This workshop will focus on becoming a self-reflective researcher in order to successfully engage minority communities.


The Building Trust between Minorities and Researchers Workshop is designed to strengthen the capacity of investigators, recruitment staff, and other research personnel to work effectively with minority communities. Post-doctoral fellows, principal investigators, co-investigators, research coordinators, recruitment staff, IRB members, and health care providers are encouraged to attend. Over a period of two days, participants will complete seven interactive and engaging modules. At the end of the workshop, participants will leave with a practical set of skills for building relationships with minority communities and recruiting and retaining minority and health disparity populations in their research.
