Congratulations to our Community Scholars In-Residence for 2017-2018, Akin Oyalowo, M.D., Joseph Benci Ph.D., MPH and Yujue Wang, M.D., Ph.D.!
Through this program—
• Scholars develop relationships with a community research partner of their choosing, identify research opportunities, and co-develop research projects during a one year tenure
• Project topics fall under a broad spectrum of cancer prevention and control topics including primary prevention, access to care, minority populations, and epidemiology
• Standing pre/post docs with an interest in conducting community-engaged health research are eligible for this program
We look forward to working with our next cohort of scholars as they increase their research capacity by developing relationships with community partners, establishing best practices in community-engaged research, and leveraging activities for scholarship and improved health outcomes!
