  • Discuss how the Communication, Awareness, Relationships, and Empowerment (C.A.R.E) research recruitment model helped to reduce challenges in recruiting predominately African American Washington, D.C communities. The model helped to build trusting relationships with community partners and enhance research team efforts to systemically address barriers to recruitment and retention of study participants.
  • Describe the Importance of diverse populations participation in clinical trials
  • Identify best practice methods used to engage racial/ethnic individuals, and tips to level up recruitment efforts.
