Strengthening translational Research in Diverse Enrollment

STRIDE is a partnership of the Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSAs) at the University of Massachusetts Medical School (UMass), the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), and Vanderbilt University School of Medicine along with the Community Campus Partnerships for Health (CCPH), an international leader in community-engaged research.

The STRIDE project aims to create tools that can be shared with researchers to help them recruit and deliver informed consent that is culturally and literacy appropriate.
