Researchers from all over the world looking to learn about new developments and techniques in the field of community engaged research will be descending upon DC this year for a conference presented by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) and Vanderbilt University.
The conference will include lectures from keynote speakers, panel discussions, and hands-on workshops helping medical professionals and researchers understand how to develop and improve Community Engaged Research (CEnR) practices. According to Vanderbilt University, CEnR doesn’t refer to one particular method, but the principles and goals of the research and the relationship between researchers and their community.
What to Expect at the Conference
The two-day event takes place from August 25 to August 26 at the AAMC’s Learning Center in downtown D.C. on K Street. Speakers include the CEOs of healthcare companies, medical school professors, medical consultants, academic researchers, and more. Topics that will be discussed range from healthcare systems research to specific topics like the National Microbiome Initiative. For more details, check out the official agenda.
