Executive Summary

Study coordinators are central to the success of patient recruitment and retention in clinical research. The proposed supplement program will renew and expand the pilot that was designed to train, support, and recruit study coordinators from diverse backgrounds to work on clinical research within the NIDDK mission. This renewal and revision will expand eligibility to all human subject studies and clinical research within NIDDK to ensure that we have a diversified biomedical research workforce.
