Presented by: Pamela Schreiner (she/her), Ph.D., Professor Division of Epidemiology and Community Health University of Minnesota
The CARDIA Study is an NHLBI-funded contract that has been seeing participants since 1985. We were scheduled to start the Year 35 clinic visit, our 10th exam, in June 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic delayed observational research studies. This delay coincided with requirements for multicenter studies to move to a single IRB model, and with NIH directives that contracts fund science through independent ancillary studies. The current presentation will discuss how CARDIA pivoted quickly to navigate these challenges both nationally and within the University of Minnesota.
Who should attend? All SPH faculty, staff and students welcome. No registration required.
