The PCORI Annual Meeting — which brings together members of the healthcare community, including researchers, clinicians, patients, caregivers, and other stakeholders — serves as a report to the nation on our progress in funding initiatives to determine which care approaches work best, for whom, and under what circumstances.
In 2022, PCORI hosted more than two dozen sessions, including two keynotes and 12 breakouts. The meeting was open to the public at no cost.
On the first day, Kirsten Bibbins-Domingo, PhD, MD, MAS — Editor in Chief of JAMA and a national leader in addressing health disparities — presented a keynote on the importance of advancing health equity, and how ensuring a diverse and inclusive clinical research landscape that also advances the larger goals of equity requires a paradigm shift.
On the second day, Ashley Valentine, MRes — a national leader in sickle cell disease advocacy and Co-Founder and President of Sick Cells — presented a keynote on how her organization uses storytelling to promote equity, advocacy, and empowering the patient community to change the way people with sickle cell disease receive quality access to care.
Across both days, breakout sessions delved into topics such as health equity and disparities, the fight against COVID-19, maternal morbidity and mortality, intellectual and developmental disabilities, and more. The meeting also offered attendees accessible learning and networking opportunities.
