The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) is undertaking a strategic initiative to identify new National Priorities for Health to guide our mission-driven work and outline a Research Agenda that encompasses specific topic areas. As part of an effort to offer stakeholders opportunities to provide input and avenues to engage with PCORI during this important time in its evolution, PCORI is hosting a series of Virtual Community Convenings on Research and Health to hear from a diverse range of individuals in West Virginia, Colorado and Maryland surrounding key themes relevant to PCORI’s proposed National Priorities.

On Wednesday, October 13, 2021, PCORI hosted the Maryland Virtual Community Convening on Research and Health to gather perspectives and hear from community members and leaders on important topics, such as supporting learning health systems and achieving equitable access to high quality health care as part of our work to refresh our Strategic Plan and gather input. This webinar was open to the public and registration was required.
