NCATS Day 2018: Engaging Patients and Communities for Smarter Science
September 28 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm
Save the date for NCATS Day 2018: Engaging Patients and Communities for Smarter Science on Sept. 28, 2018, at the National Institutes of Health main campus in Bethesda, Maryland.
The purpose of the event, which will be held from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., is to provide a forum to share and reflect upon patient and community needs — as well as best practices in addressing those needs — so that NCATS can best shape its research priorities, programs and initiatives.
Participants will share and discuss ways to overcome translational research challenges and leverage opportunities through effective patient and community engagement. They also will learn strategies to broaden participation in research and to incorporate diverse patient and community input into their work.
