Brief Description

Research among diverse populations has demonstrated disparities in treatment outcomes, access to care, genetic testing rates, and disease survival across many diseases. This new Diversity and Health Equity Research Grant is a one-year project where the funding is available for two $75,000 Research grants.

The purpose of this award is to support research to understand and eliminate inequities in cancer care, specifically related to differential outcomes experienced by women from underserved or marginalized populations with gynecologic cancer, as well as to increase representation of underrepresented groups in gynecologic oncology as a strategy to achieve health equity for underserved women. Those eligible for applying are those who propose a study focused on a marginalized group, or those who identify as being from an under-represented group within the field of research.

This research would commence in April 2021, with a final report due on or before June, 2022.
