Registration Open for Translating Research to Innovations in Practice 2021
The glaring racial disparities and impact on the social determinants of health unearthed by the COVID-19 pandemic support the development of anti-racist research approaches to address these issues. The persistent presence of healthcare disparities in our nation, our racist past, and the lack of diversity in the nursing profession are increasingly evident. Dr. Fields’ presentation will address these issues and the need to improve recruitment of diverse and inclusive human subject samples in research studies.
Dr. Fields is Research Professor and Associate Dean for Equity and Inclusion at the Penn State College of Nursing. He is a well-known and respected HIV/AIDS prevention research scientist with a focus on young men of color. He is a lifetime member of the National Black Nurses Association, Inc. He is also founder and CEO of “The S.D.F Group, LLC”, which is a health innovation consultant company. He has 29 years of experience in the health sector as an educator, researcher, clinician, administrator, consultant, health policy specialist, and entrepreneur/business owner.
