Working to change systems and structures to eliminate systemic racism in clinical research requires learning more about it, willingly engaging in difficult dialogue, and committing to a justice-oriented anti-racist praxis in research work. The goal of this workshop is to stimulate such dialogue and action among research teams at the University of Pittsburgh.
