Michael Cary, Nancy Crego and Schenita Randolph were recently selected to participate in the Duke Health Health Disparities Research Curriculum (HDRC) sponsored by Duke Clinical & Translational Science Institute, which is in support by the Duke CTSA grant.
HDRC is designed to increase knowledge and skill of participants in the evaluation, design, and conduct of health disparities research. The curriculum consists of monthly sessions which combine didactics and student activities addressing:
- Nomenclature of health disparities
- Contributors to health disparities
- Role of implicit bias in disparities research
- Review and critique of health disparities research across the translational spectrum
- Issues in the design and conduct of health disparities research
The Health Disparities Research Curriculum is led by senior faculty (Laura Svetkey, Kimberly Johnson, Kevin Thomas). Sessions are led by Duke faculty with expertise in health disparities research.
