Save the date for NCATS Day 2018. This event provides a forum for sharing and reflecting upon patient and community needs — as well as best practices in addressing those needs — so that the Center can best shape its research priorities, programs and initiatives.

Patients and patient advocates, caregivers, community partners, community health engagement professionals, clinical and translational researchers, NCATS staff and others are encouraged to attend so that they can share and discuss ways to overcome translational research challenges and leverage opportunities through effective patient and community engagement. Participants will learn strategies to broaden participation in research and to incorporate patient and community input into their work.

The full-day event will feature presentations, interactive discussion and activities, and a poster session to provide more details about NCATS programs and initiatives. The event will foster an open dialogue for diverse participants to discuss common roadblocks to translational science, brainstorm ideas for improvement and apply that knowledge to strengthen patient and community engagement at NCATS.

Admission is free, but space is limited, so please register early. Join the conversation on Sept. 28, 2018, on Twitter using #NCATSDay.
