InCHIP’s Community-Engaged Health Research Core is very excited to announce that we will be offering a workshop on Cross-Cultural and Diversity Inclusiveness for Researchers.
The training will take place on:
- Thursday May 18th 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM in Room 204 of the Ryan Building at UConn Storrs.
- Breakfast will be provided at 8:30 AM (vegetarian/vegan and gluten free options included)
- Due to the interactive nature of this event, the workshop is limited to 23 people. Reservations are required, so SIGN UP NOW!
This training will help each of us examine our own attitudes and assumptions about individuals and communities who have identities, experiences, and beliefs different from our own. And it will expand the skills that we need to effectively work together with individuals and communities on addressing important public health issues through research.
We are very excited that this training will be provided by Grace Damio, MS CD/N, who is the Director of Research and Training at the Hispanic Health Council In Hartford. She has extensive experience conducting this training, and she has worked for many years with University researchers and with communities in Hartford.
The Hispanic Health Council’s Cross-Cultural & Diversity Inclusiveness (CC&DI) Training Program was established in 2003, and has since been tailored to train over 2,000 participants of diverse backgrounds. In 2013-2014, HHC partnered with the Connecticut Hospital Association, St. Francis Hospital and Medical Center, University of Connecticut Health Center, The Hospital of Central Connecticut, State of Connecticut Department of Education/Support for Pregnant and Parenting Teens Program, and CT-RI Public Health Training Center at Yale School of Public Health, to train over 500 participants.

InCHIP’s Training and Development Core is very excited to announce that our Team Science Summit will take place on May 11th!
For those unfamiliar with the term, according to the National Cancer Institute “Team science is a collaborative effort to address a scientific challenge that leverages the strengths and expertise of professionals trained in different fields. Although traditional single-investigator driven approaches are ideal for many scientific endeavors, coordinated teams of investigators with diverse skills and knowledge may be especially helpful for studies of complex social problems with multiple causes.”
The event will draw on the expertise of Dr. Kara Hall, a Health Scientist, Director of the Science of Team Science (SciTS) Team, and Director of the Theories Initiative in the Health Behaviors Research Branch (HBRB) at the National Cancer Institute (NCI). Dr Hall is one of the preeminent leaders in the Science of Team Science field.
The Team Science Summit will take on May 11th and will consist of:
- 9AM-12PM Workshop on Strategies in Team Science: Planning for Successful Collaborations. Breakfast will be served. (Maximum 40 participants)
- 2-3PM Kara Hall: “The Science of Team Science: Enhancing to Improve the Success of Cross-Disciplinary Science” (Keynote)
Both events will take place in Room 204 of the Ryan Building. Please click here for directions to InCHIP.
