Mayo Clinic’s Sean Phelan, PhD, was recently awarded two NIH grants in furtherance of health dispari-ties research. The first, an R21, will support a study on the influence of medical school climate and cur-riculum on graduates’ prosocial attitudes and decision to practice in underserved or racially diverse com-munities. The second grant, an R03, will support assessing the impact of race, education, and other dis-parities on the quality of patient-provider communication and the effect of introducing a new decision-making tool to the process. Co-investigators and/or collaborators on these two projects include Victor Montori, MD, Nilay Shah, PhD, John Tilburt, MD, Michelle van Ryn, PhD, and Richard White, MD. OHDR Congratulates Dr. Phelan and his colleagues!
