Flyer image with logistical information of the GHUCCTS April 2021 GITVC eventGHUCCTS in the (Virtual) Community aims to promote clinical research awareness, diversity in research, and community-engaged research through virtual outreach efforts that will be held monthly. Our April session will cover "Learning from History: Safely Moving Women's Health Forward".

Join us to learn how exposing past research abuses prompted changes to protect research participants. We will highlight some of the changes and how they're used in a research study that aims to improve pelvic floor disorders and urinary incontinence.

Guest Speakers:

  • Tatiana Sanses, MD is a Urogynecologist who serves as the Chief of Female Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery / Urogynecology at Howard University Hospital in Washington, D.C. She has a special interest in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery.
  • Veronica Thomas, Ph.D. is a Professor at Howard University in the Department of Human Development and Psychoeducational Studies and Director, Evaluation and Continuous Improvement component of GHUCCTS. Her research interests include culturally responsive evaluations, the well-being of Black families, with emphasis on women and girls’ health, and the academic and socio-emotional development of youth placed at risk.

If you are interested in learning how research has changed to protect you and others, please register for the event.
