Description:

Sponsored by the MSTP Student Council, DPPS is a series of conversations between researchers and current trainees, which address the unique experiences of those who identify as an underrepresented minority and/or serve populations where health disparities exist. DPPS is a series of discussions about diversity within medicine and biomedical sciences, whether this diversity be related to ethnicity, race, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, socioeconomic status or something else. We strive to offer new perspectives for students of all backgrounds as we move forward in our training and careers.

Our distinguished speaker this Spring is Keith Norris, M.D., Ph.D. from UCLA. His research focuses on hypertension and chronic kidney disease in disadvantaged populations, and he is a pioneer in translational research related to health disparities as the founding PI for the first national translational research network dedicated to reducing health disparities (the NIH-RCMI Translational Research Network). In addition, he actively works to advance community-academic partnerships through his leadership of the Clinical and Translational Science Institute Community Engagement Research Program.

Everyone is welcome as we believe that a diversity of perspectives is beneficial to everyone, so RSVP now!

If you have any questions/want to learn more, please feel free to contact anyone on our board.
