The NIH-NIDDK is hosting an in person workshop on biological mechanisms of racism, marginalization, and discrimination on April 17-18. The theme of this workshop is “Understanding the Biological Mechanisms Underlying the Health Consequences of Racism, Marginalization, and Discrimination.”
Purpose and Goals: To convene people from diverse populations living with or at risk for diabetes and digestive and kidney diseases and conditions, as well as researchers and clinicians from across disciplines, to understand the state of the science and identify opportunities for considering common biological pathways underlying the consequences of racism, marginalization, and discrimination across population groups and disease areas.
The focus on interdisciplinary research is intended to foster the cross-pollination of ideas and shared learning, as well as to promote consideration of intersectionality across marginalized identities and the multidimensional research framework.
Current CAIRIBU K12 Scholar at the University of Michigan Urological Epidemiology (KUroEpi) Institutional Research Career Development Program, Oluwaferanmi Okanlami, MD, MS, is a part of the Organizing Committee for this event. See a list of all CAIRIBU-affiliated K12 Scholars HERE.
