We are delighted to congratulate HELI 2016 alum Charles Rogers, PhD, MPH, on his recent acceptance into the two-week Summer Institute on Research in Implementation Science for Equity (RISE) and the year-round RISE program!
This program is part of the Programs to Increase Diversity Among Individuals Engaged in Health-Related Research (PRIDE), a national research and training initiative funded by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI).
Dr. Rogers is an Assistant Professor in the Health Disparities Division of the University of Minnesota Medical School. As a behavioral scientist and certified health education specialist (CHES), Dr. Rogers’ research agenda contributes to translational solutions that address the complex underpinnings of inequalities in colorectal cancer prevention & control among African American and other underserved men.
As a RISE scholar Dr. Rogers will participate in: 1) a two-week initial summer research training program held at the University of California, San Francisco; 2) structured mentoring activities during the academic year, including one in-person meeting with his assigned UCSF-RISE mentor; 3) on-going monthly works-in-progress calls; 4) mid-year meeting tied to the Implementation Science conference in December 2017; and 5) a second summer session (2018) for 5-days in San Francisco, California.
Congratulations on this prestigious honor, Dr. Rogers!
