About the Workshop

This year’s Saunders-Watkins workshop brings together researchers, health care providers, community partners, and federal, state, and local government officials and other stakeholders to discuss the current evidence and future research and practice needs to build trust in community-engaged research to tackle health inequities, including those revealed during the COVID-19 pandemic. Trust is critical in biomedical research, especially clinical trial recruitment of minority populations. A trusted and transparent process will enhance the overall design, conduct, and oversight of clinical research/trials and eventually benefit all populations. Meanwhile, misinformation, ineffective communication, unconscious bias, and limited community engagement may contribute to mistrust.
