About: DIVERSE Network

  • Diversity and Inclusion in cardioVascular trials through Enrollment and education Resulting in Sustainable Equity

    The DIVERSE Network Center is a collaboration led by Stanford University School of Medicine and Morehouse School of Medicine, serving as a core component for the American Heart Association (AHA) Strategically-Focused Research Network (SFRN) on the Science of Diversity in Clinical Trials (SDCT). We envision our Center becoming a nationwide partner and resource for addressing the science of diverse enrollment and retention, training the next generation of clinical trial leaders, and disseminating best practices. Diverse populations of focus include these communities: Black, Latinx/a/o, Asian, Tribal or Pacific Islander, women, ages 75 years or older, LGBTQ+, or having dementia or other major disabilities.
