2017 DPC Annual Conference



This meeting is intended for the key staff and investigators who are part of the Enhancing the Diversity of the Biomedical Workforce (BUILD/NRMN/CEC) initiative that forms the Diversity Program Consortium to share the success and obstacles encountered at your site and to encourage constructive dialogue on how other sites have and plan to adapt for the life of the program and beyond. Members will participate in invited and internal presentations to maximize consortium resources. The event will feature a summary of the year’s progress, official introductions to new members via networking, sessions led by sites on curriculum innovations, discussions on publications and special activities for implementing data collection and evaluation. In addition, BUILD sites will have a forum available to address important issues that they would like to discuss with NRMN mentorship or leadership training promoting collaboration across sites.

NOTE: the main conference will be October 10 to 11, 2017. However, there will be an optional Meet and Greet the evening of October 9th (starting at 530pm) as well as a registration table to pick up materials for the event.

The Diversity Program Consortium Coordination and Evaluation Center at UCLA is supported by Office of the Director of the National Institutes of Health / National Institutes of General Medical Sciences under award number U54GM119024.
