Jimmy Fund Auditorium

35 Binney Street
Boston, MA 02115

Join us for a free, interactive learning experience with the Bok Players which will explore complex issues such as engaging diverse communities in research, establishing trust across cultures, respecting the diversity of communities, obtaining consent from diverse populations, encouraging minority accrual in clinical research, and dealing with unconscious personal bias and stereotyping.

Following each performance, the Bok Players will facilitate an interactive discussion and Q&A session. These discussions will be supplemented by a panel of experts representing human subject protection/research regulations, research subject advocacy, clinical nursing, and the research subject experience.

Presented in partnership by the Harvard Catalyst Clinical Research Center (HCCRC), Harvard Catalyst’s Regulatory Knowledge and Support Program, Community Health Innovation and Research Program (CHIRP), Program for Faculty Development and Diversity (PFDD), the Survey and Statistical Methods and Training Cores of the University of Massachusetts Boston – Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center U54 Comprehensive Partnership to Reduce Cancer Health Disparities, and the Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center’s Initiative to Eliminate Cancer Disparities.

Nursing CEU credits are available to attendees of the symposium.

This free event is open to all faculty, staff, and community members. A networking reception will follow the panel discussion.

Registration is required. Please contact Thomas Naughton for more information.
