Cancer Disparities

Call for Applications: Place Matters Workshop (Incorporating Measures of the Built and Social Environment into Disparities Research)

Applications Due April 1: Place Matters Workshop (Incorporating Measures of the Built and Social Environment into Disparities Research) 

This Friday April 11 (9:30-11:30am) workshop is designed to support and encourage disparities-focused gene-environment research.  Topics will include an introduction to the concept of place and how to measure the built and social environment, linking individual location data to area-based measures, analysis, and causal inference.  The session will be tailored to individuals who would like to incorporate a novel aim or method into a grant they are currently developing, with a particular interest in supporting faculty writing K-awards, R23s, R01s, etc. that are disparities-focused, or would be strengthened by the addition of a disparities-focused aim.  Sponsored by the Harvard Catalyst Health Disparities Research Program
