To date, we have awarded approximately $168.5 million to support 818 projects advancing patient-centered comparative clinical effectiveness research (CER) through the Eugene Washington PCORI Engagement Award program, including:

  • An initiative led by Wayne State University to establish an Aging Research Council and build older adult capacity to be involved with virtual research. The project team will identify and prioritize patient-centered CER topics relevant to older African Americans.

  • A project led by GO2 Foundation for Lung Cancer to build capacity and patient engagement within the stigmatized lung cancer community and identify critical priorities for meaningful and effective patient-centered CER.

  • An undertaking led by El Futuro, Inc. to develop a sustainable Learning Collaborative that will identify mental health outcomes desired by the Latino community and barriers to Latino patient/community members’ participation in patient-centered CER.
