NINE NURSING SCHOOLS SELECTED TO RECEIVE FUNDING IN EDUCATING DIVERSE COMMUNITIES ABOUT THE ALL OF US RESEARCH PROGRAM
The nursing research community has been on the hype in developing new discoveries to support public health, and now they are off to build a national research cohort to increase diversity awareness.
In a news release, the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) had recently announced that nine nursing schools have been selected to receive funding through AACN’s Mini-Grants Awards Program, educating diverse communities about the All of Us Research program. The nine schools that will receive the said funding are:
- California State University, San Bernardino
- Duquesne University (PA)
- Northwestern State University (LA)
- Saint Peter’s University (NJ)
- Sam Houston State University (TX)
- Southern University of Baton Rouge (LA)
- University of Louisiana, Lafayette
- University of Maryland
- University of Tennessee
“The All of Us Research program is making a real difference in strengthening the nation’s research data repository, and AACN is proud to advance this important effort,” said Dr. Ann Cary, Chair of the AACN Board of Directors. “By supporting the All of Us Research program and expanding the pool of individuals available to participate in critical research initiatives, academic nursing is helping to improve the health of all people in the United States by extending precision medicine to develop more effective ways to treat and prevent disease.”
The All of Us Research program is launched by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), seeking to build a national research cohort of one million or more participants reflecting the diversity of the United States. Joined with AACN, the two institution will advance this initiative through administering a mini-grants program facilitating the engagement of the nursing education community with the All of Us Research program with its central focus of including historically underrepresented communities in biomedical research (UBR).
Erudite Nursing Institute™ supports NIH and AACN in building a national research cohort with a central focus of including historically underrepresented communities in biomedical research (UBR). This way we can easily reflect the importance of diversity in any areas of discipline and in the aspect of our daily living.
