iTHIVE Voices Series Stephanie DeLucaPlease join iThriv for the first seminar in the 2023 Voices in Clinical and Translational Science seminar series presented by iTHRIV.

The Voices in Clinical & Translational Science Seminar series serves as a platform to lift underrepresented voices in research across the iTHRIV partnership with a focus on promoting dialogue and encouraging team science. This virtual seminar series is aimed at amplifying diverse perspectives in clinical and translational research to foster innovation and an inclusive environment. Presenters will share their science and also their lived experience as an underrepresented person in research. It is our hope that listeners will be called to listen more deeply to one another, and to seek new opportunities to broaden their own research in our shared quest to improve the health of our communities in Virginia and beyond.

Registration is free, but required; register through the event link above or here.
