Registration is open for Building Trust workshop for PhD students, researchers

Early registration is encouraged—space is limited! RSVP at:

The School of Nursing’s Center for Aging Research and Education is working with the Collaborative Center for Health Equity and Institute for Clinical and Translational Research to offer a Building Trust workshop at Signe Skott Cooper Hall on Tuesday May 12 and Wednesday May 13, both days from 10 am to 2 pm.

Building Trust is an evidence-based curriculum developed at the University of Maryland to help research staff and faculty become more intentional and successful at recruiting and retaining study participants from communities of color.

Through the Building Trust curriculum, participants will respond to trigger films; discuss complex ethical issues; and practice skills for enhancing recruitment, retention, informed consent, and the development of community partnerships. The overall objectives are to strengthen the capacity of researchers to ethically engage with communities of color; and effectively recruit and retain diverse participants in research. The goal of health equity is central to this work.

Please RSVP early. Space is limited to facilitate small group work.

Direct any questions to Diane at or 265-9542.
