Opportunity Purpose
Perinatal patient partners from diverse backgrounds and underrepresented groups may face barriers preventing research participation. Our recruitment and engagement strategy hopes to identify and address such barriers to improve diversity and inclusivity in maternal health research. Feedback from patient partners about their lived experiences will help guide our engagement strategy and how we conduct equitable patient oriented research.

Participation in this research opportunity would involve either an interview (in person or over zoom) or participation in a focus group. The interviews/focus groups would be semi-structured with some set questions but with time and opportunity to speak about your own lived experience and suggestions on how to improve diversity.
