The National Institute on Aging will be hosting a virtual meeting to discuss the potential and planning of a practice-based research network (PBRN) to address the disparities gap with the recruitment and retention of diverse and underserved populations to AD/ADRD clinical research studies.
PBRNs are networks of health care clinicians and practices working together to answer community-based health care questions and translate research findings into practice–they have the potential to directly engage diverse and underserved communities in AD/ADRD clinical research.
When: Friday, April 30, 2021; 2:00 – 5:00 p.m. EDT
Keynote Speakers: Lori Minasian, MD, Deputy Director for the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Division of Cancer Prevention and Jonathan N. Tobin, PhD, Cardiovascular Epidemiologist and Professor in the Department of Epidemiology and Population Health at Albert Einstein College of Medicine
Panel Speakers: Jennifer Manly, PhD, Andrea Gilmore-Bykovskyi, PhD, RN, and Jonathan Jackson, PhD
Who Should Attend: Researchers and other stakeholders who are interested in learning about PBRNs to address AD/ADRD research gaps
