Dr. 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.
