We are pleased to announce our distinguished panelists: Dr. Norris, Dr. Hayes-Bautista, and Dr. Hodge. Our panelist will discuss the impact of racism and systems of oppression on marginalized communities' health and well-being and how epidemiology, health sciences, and health policy should respond. Further, the speakers will discuss how public health education, research, and practice can align with anti-racism and social justice. Specifically, our panelists will highlight insights and successes from their work with African American/Black, Latinx, and Native American communities.

The Broad Summer Research Program (BSRP) is an intensive nine-week summer research opportunity designed for undergraduates with a commitment to biomedical research and an interest in genomics. BSRP has a strong record of success in helping students to nurture their passion for research and succeed in graduate school and scientific careers. Students spend the summer performing original computational or experimental-based research in labs across the Broad's research areas, from cancer to infectious disease to computational biology. At the program's conclusion, students deliver oral and poster presentations on their research projects.
BSRP features a rich curriculum outside the lab that emphasizes communication, collaborative problem-solving, graduate school preparation, and demystifying scientific careers. Our curriculum includes an intensive scientific communication course, seminars with leading scientists from Harvard and MIT, a GRE prep course, and weekly workshops focused on the graduate school application process, professional and personal development, and diversity and inclusion in the sciences.
BSRP is funded by the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) to help increase diversity in the sciences. The program is open to students with a demonstrated commitment to promoting diversity and inclusion in STEM disciplines. Students from groups that are underrepresented in the sciences are especially encouraged to apply. These groups include Native Americans or Alaska Natives, Blacks or African Americans, Asians or Asian Americans, Hispanics or Latinxs, Native Hawaiians or Other Pacific Islanders, as well as individuals with disabilities.

Chronic Illness Advocacy & Awareness Group, Inc. (CIAAG) is a vital civic action, national, nonprofit organization. CIAAG formed in response to cursory healthcare policy and regulations that were designed to address the opioid crisis but have resulted in the following critical consequences, including: The destruction of our medical free enterprise system by allowing government to intervene and be the sounding authority on pain management; the resulting threat to our medical community’s right to practice without fear of retribution due to unethical regulations based on false data; the devastating complication and sometimes prohibition of access to critical care management, (i.e., improper and often abusive treatment to those in need who have become labeled substance abusers due to policy based on invalid studies and misleading information about prescription opioids and chronic pain; and the growing crisis of suicide in our disabled community as a result of the above.
Our Mission is to educate the public and nation’s legislators on the negative consequences of cursory healthcare policy and regulations regarding the opioid crisis which have created new, urgent crises in our chronically ill and disabled communities as well as our medical community. We advocate for the rights of every American citizen to obtain critical care management provided by evidence-based care and patient-centered research.
CIAAG recognizes the necessity to make timely and strategic decisions to maximize efforts and to fulfill our mission utilizing three key strategies.
1) Visibility: To build CIAAG’s voice and visibility through media campaigns, educational events, and networking to influence public policy and decision making on impactful issues.
2) Representation: To mobilize, allocate resources, and obtain regional and state representatives to foster grass-roots actions through attendance and participation in legislative public hearings related to our cause.
3) Leadership: To implement effective, non-profit leadership by promoting equality, inclusion, and multi-generational learning. As well as to provide executive coaching and peer learning opportunities by collaborating with other professional networks and learning institutions.
