Dr. Elizabeth Ofili (Morehouse School of Medicine): Democratizing Science with N=Me
Dr. Ofili will present new data on how and why traditionally under-represented patients and minority research participants may or may not choose to actively participate in scientific discovery. Her technology innovation is at the intersection of patient engagement, health systems, and the community, three stakeholder pillars that are relevant to precision medicine and discovery science. Moreover, her research underscores the opportunity to effectively engage an increasingly diverse and mobile America in a new biomedical research landscape beyond the walls of the academic health system, to the communities where participants live, work, worship, and play.
