TIN Webinar: A New Way to Manage
Recruitment at an Academic Health Center

Presented by Kate Marusina, Ph.D., M.B.A.
UC Davis Health adopted a platform that changes how study teams find and manage people interested in participating in research. Presenters will discuss the creation of a community-facing resource, connecting study teams with potential participants through technology, leveraging social media for targeted outreach, success stories and use cases. Register now.

Date: Wednesday, July 17
Time: 12:00 – 1:00 pm

July is National Blueberry Month

In our region, July is the harvest period for not only blueberries but also for cherries, peaches, plums, raspberries and strawberries, not to mention a wide variety of vegetables. One of the best places to find fresh produce is at your local farmer’s market. Visit RocHealthData to find a market near you and see how our region’s fruit and vegetable expenditures compare to state and national averages.

NIH Funding

The NIH Common Fund has generated several valuable and widely available data sets. To maximize the impact of these data and engage a broader community of end-users, the Common Fund is offering administrative supplements encouraging the use of Common Fund data sets. Supplements are intended to enable novel and compelling biological questions to be formulated and addressed and/or to generate cross-cutting hypotheses for future research. Applications due by Monday, July 29, 5:00 pm. Learn more.
