The National Institutes of Health is inviting Tribal leaders and community members to participate in the upcoming “NIH Tribal Consultation on COVID-19 Research” on Thursday, May 28, 2020, from 2:00-4:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight time. This rapid-response Tribal Consultation and Urban Confer session will be held as a web-based meeting. Please see the Dear Tribal Leader Letter announcement.
The Agency has developed a framing paper to explain more about the consultation session, and the research that is the topic of the consultation. View the agenda. They will provide a presentation during the consultation, and then would like to gather guidance from Tribal leaders on questions like:
- What concerns need to be addressed to enable the participation of Tribal communities in COVID-19 research?
- How should research results be returned to the communities?
- What can the NIH do to assist Tribes in applying for funding or developing research partnerships?
- What are the priorities of Tribal communities with respect to COVID-19 prevention, diagnosis, and treatment?
