Tulane University and LPHI partnered with stakeholders to address engagement in research on COVID-19 among communities who have been historically underrepresented as researchers and participants. The project introduced tools and mindsets designed to address disparities in health research by engaging in equity-centered work. Through a process of co-design, the team produced a toolkit to guide investigators and stakeholders in identifying research topics that are important to people on health issues that significantly impact their lives. The work on this equity-centered design toolkit was funded by a Eugene Washington Engagement Award from the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI).
