COMPPARE Invited To Participate in Annual PCORI Meeting

PCORIDr. Nancy Mendenhall, COMPPARE Principal Investigator, and Charles Griggs, Minority Engagement Group Coordinator, have been invited to participate in the seventh annual meeting of the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI), to be held virtually in November.

Dr. Mendenhall and Mr. Griggs will contribute as panelists in a session focused on diversity and inclusion in research entitled “The benefits of engagement: building partnerships to help move health research toward trust and equity.”

The November 17-19 PCORI Annual Meeting will bring together members of the healthcare community, including researchers, patients, caregivers, clinicians, insurers, health system representatives, and other stakeholders. The event serves as a report to the nation on PCORI’s progress in funding initiatives to determine which care approaches work best, for whom, and under what circumstances.

COMPPARE has achieved both a remarkable overall accrual rate and a remarkable accrual rate of minorities and stands to become a model for patient-centric clinical research in the future.
