Webinar: Connecting with Underserved and Understudied Populations Through Research

Posted by on November 8th, 2019 Posted in: Minority Health Concerns, Webinars
Tags: , , , ,

Although clinicians and researchers may struggle with defining underserved and understudied populations, it is clear that certain groups of patients, especially in rural communities, bring unique experiences to patients, clinicians, and researchers alike. The presenters will address strategies in better understanding three groups – patients from the homeless community, the LGBTQ+ community, and the Amish. These presenters have successfully engaged these populations in positive ways and have acquired important understanding. They will describe what they’ve learned and how other clinicians, faculty, and researchers may benefit from their work.
