The Integrating Special Populations Core Advisory Council helps identify relevant resources and opportunities including registries and databases, clinical trial networks, research tools, educational offerings, and best practices to share with our local research community. This advisory council also provides guidance in identifying the needs of health disparities and special populations researchers and developing plans to address those gaps.
Additional members were selected for the CHDI-CTSI Child Health Equity Program to ensure specific stakeholder experience in child health equity. These members will provide input in the development of this pilot program RFA and will continue to guide the pilot program. All Advisory Council members are invited to participate in special interest initiatives, such as the CHDI-CTSI Child Health Equity Program.
