Tribal-Academic Partnerships for Diabetes Research and Proposal Development

May 21, 2019

The Research Partnerships with AI/AN Communities Core hosted a Next Steps event in St. Louis on May 21 with the goal to 1) disseminate the Holding Spaces Toolkit and Tribal Research Future Game and 2) advance grant proposals through a proposal development workshop.

During the morning activity, researchers received tools to successfully conduct community based participatory research and build relationships with tribal communities. The event included 20 participants representing investigators from CDTR cores and partner institutions, a community-based organization, and students from the Buder Center for American Indian Studies.

In the afternoon, investigators were invited to apply these principles in a grant proposal development workshop where they received one-on-one consultations with CDTR Core Leads.

If you are interest in receiving support for your proposal or manuscript, please contact center staff.


Moving Research to Publication: Health Equity in Diabetes and Obesity Prevention and Treatment

October 5th, 2018

On October 5th, the CDTR and Institute for Public Health hosted 30 investigators for the collaborative event, “Moving Research to Publication: Health Equity in Diabetes and Obesity Prevention and Treatment.” The goal of the day was to facilitate individual and collaborative publications among CDTR investigators pursuing research in diabetes or obesity prevention. Writing groups formed around similar research interests and participants represented a variety of disciplines. All CDTR partner institutions were represented, with participants attending from Washington University, University of Missouri School of Medicine, the Council on Black Health, and the National Congress of American Indians.

We look forward to supporting the collaborations initiated during the event and supporting our members as they work on their manuscripts.
