REACH invites investigators of all career stages and health equity research experience to participate in our ongoing monthly seminar. The first half of each seminar will be spent discussing: 1) newly published or seminal articles related to determinants of health inequities or 2) Important topics such as “ways to reduce bias in your scientific method” and “how can we change systems through our research.” The second half of each seminar will showcase research being conducted within our department to grow collaborations, generate innovative ideas, and provide constructive feedback to support the professional growth of the presenter.
