Are Some Research Study Populations “Hard-to-Reach”?
Exploring Ethics: Despite the importance of diversity, equity and inclusion in health research, too many investigators face challenges in recruiting diverse study participants. Using current examples, we will highlight some of those challenges and the implications for interpreting and applying results. This presentation will also explore how community-engaged research can address these deficits and promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in health research.
