U54 Evidence Academy

To make an impact in reducing health disparities in minority communities, mechanisms are needed that engage community members in the dissemination of research results to all stakeholders. Evidence Academies are being used to actively engage diverse stakeholders in developing effective precision medicine interventions as part of the Transdisciplinary Collaborative Center in Precision Medicine and Minority Men's Health. Evidence Academies keep all stakeholders informed of research findings from Transdisciplinary Collaborative Center studies and about best practices for implementing findings from precision medicine research to clinical care and public health practice.
