RCMI 2022 presents research opportunities to share new and innovative approaches, develop the next generation of health disparities researchers, and extend the reach and visibility of communities whose interest is improving health outcomes.


The 2022 National Conference of the RCMI Consortium is a forum to present the exciting science of RCMI funded investigators, including early-stage investigators. Concurrent Workshops will engage directors and program staff from Investigator Development, Community Engagement, Research Infrastructure, Administrative and Evaluation Cores, who will work together to develop Common Metrics to measure and track progress and programmatic outcomes of the RCMI U54 Centers.
