Dr. Smalls selected as a 2017-2018 PRIDE-AHD Scholar
Congratulations to Dr. Brittany Smalls for being selected as a Scholar in the 2017-2018 PRIDE Advanced Health Disparities Research Training program. The Programs to Increase Diversity among Individuals Engaged in Health-Related Research (PRIDE) were established to provide junior faculty, from backgrounds underrepresented in biomedical research, with opportunities to gain the knowledge and tools they need to carry out independent and meaningful research and advance their careers.
This initiative is sponsored by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI). The NHLBI provides global leadership for research, training, and education programs to promote the prevention and treatment of heart, lung, and blood diseases and enhance the health of all individuals so that they can live longer and more fulfilling lives.
As a scholar for this program, Dr. Smalls will receive advanced training in an interprofessional environment that facilitates successful team science career development and that contributes to decreases in health disparities through impactful research. This year-long mentoring experience will also offer training that will include experiential skill development in grantsmanship, scientific writing strategies, epidemiological/bio-statistical methods, and more.
