Summer Data Immersion (SDI) program: Family Care: Racial/Ethnic and Contextual Factors

a Workshop

Monday, 06/07/2021 to 06/16/2021.

Applications are open for a virtual Summer Data Immersion program hosted by the Michigan Center for Contextual Factors in Alzheimer’s Disease, June 7-16, 2021.
The Michigan Center for Contextual Factors in Alzheimer’s Disease (MCCFAD) is an NIH/NIA-funded Alzheimer’s disease focused Resource Center for Minority Aging Research (AD-RCMAR) that seeks to address disparities in Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias (ADRD) through research findings, mentorship, community links, and increased numbers of behavioral and social scientists from underrepresented backgrounds.

The Summer Data Immersion (SDI) program provides hands-on training in the use of publicly available data resources to address important research questions relevant to ADRD. The theme of the 2021 program will be “Family Care: Racial/Ethnic and Contextual Factors.” During the 8-day program, data will be used from the National Health and Aging Trends Study (NHATS) and its linked National Study of Caregiving (NSOC). The SDI program advances a team science approach. It will include informational presentations about best practices for working with NHATS/NSOC data by a study Principal Investigator, as well as discussion on the topics of race/ethnicity, culture and family care.

Interested individuals should complete the application and upload a CV/Biosketch using the following link SDI application . Completed applications with CV/Biosketch should be submitted by February 15, 2021. Please contact mccfad.isr@umich.edu with any questions.
