Flyer for Ishan Williams presentation.The Voices in Clinical and Translational Science Seminar Series is designed to lift underrepresented voices in research across the iTHRIV partnership. The series focuses on promoting dialogue and encouraging team science. The quarterly seminar series is designed to amplify diverse perspectives in clinical and translational research, and in doing so, foster innovation and an inclusive environment. iTHRIV hopes that attendees will use this series as an opportunity to listen more deeply to one another and to broaden their own research in the quest to improve the health of communities in Virginia and beyond.

Please join us on July 30th, 2024 for our next seminar, presented by Ishan C. Williams, PhD, FGSA, Associate Professor at the University of Virginia, School of Nursing.
