Strategies for Mitigating Linguistic and Cultural Barriers in Health Research

Date Tue, Mar 29
Time 12: 00 PM - 1: 00 PM
Location Zoom


The DC Metropolitan area is one of the most richest racially, ethnically, and culturally diverse in the U.S. Despite this rich diversity, clinical trials are not reflective of the U.S. population. The forum seeks to promote a culture of inclusivity in health research and enhance investigator capacity by featuring tested culturally and linguistically appropriate approaches for inclusion of people limited English proficiency (LEP).

Clinical trials are not reflective of the vast racial, ethnic, and cultural diversity of our population in the U.S. The Georgetown University School of Medicine Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and the Georgetown Howard Universities Center for Clinical Translational Science (GHUCCTS) invite current and future health researchers to participate in the Health Equity Forum: Strategies for Mitigating Linguistic and Cultural Barriers in Health Research. This forum will address culturally and linguistically appropriate approaches for inclusion of people with limited English proficiency (LEP) into health research.
