WE-CARE works to bridge researchers with the community in order to achieve health equity. Inclusion of underrepresented populations in research studies is needed to ensure treatment, therapies and interventions are effective for all. Through WE-CARE, researchers can engage with the local community to raise awareness about their research and increase enrollment and participation in their studies.
The Research Review Process is a two-part process consisting of (1) abstract submission and (2) a brief presentation with Q&A to a committee of community members. Based on the committee’s feedback, your study will be promoted to the WE-CARE community network.
Your abstract provides the committee detailed information regarding your study. Here is a link to the questions you will be asked. Please note you will also be asked to upload your informed consent.
After the advisory board reviews your abstract, they will inform you of next steps and provide complete details for the presentation.
