Associate Professor of Professional Practice in Nurse Anesthesia, Dr. Dru Riddle, will lead a prestigious collaboration of investigators and institutions to prioritize research topics to advance racial health equity.

The $1 million grant will allow this team to undertake a comprehensive effort to listen to stakeholders and communities, perform landscape analyses of existing resources and prioritize next steps for systematic reviews with the goal of reducing health disparities.

“To date, guidance documents for systematic reviews have not routinely considered health equity when selecting topics, considering outcomes, conducting critical appraisal, assessing applicability of evidence to specific populations or settings, nor when communicating findings to key stakeholders and communities,” Riddle said.

This grant sets out to change that, and Riddle will be the key asset to the effort.
