NIH Funds COVID-19 Community Engagement Research Efforts

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is funding research for outreach and engagement efforts in ethnic and racial minority communities disproportionately affected by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.  NIH notes the research efforts will focus on COVID-19 awareness and education research, especially among African Americans, Hispanics/Latinos, and American Indians — populations that account for over half of all reported cases in the United States.  To read the NIH announcement and summary of its funding of COVID-19 community engagement research efforts, use the link below.
