Success Story: Population Health

Dr. Rosa Gonzalez-Guarda of the Duke School of Nursing used CTSI’s network of community engagement experts to hone her proposal for a $3.4 million NIH grant to study health disparities in Latino immigrants.

“My colleagues in the School of Nursing were very good about letting me know about the resources that are available through CTSI,” she said. “I was drawn to CTSI’s Community Engagement Core and started participating in their activities. My peers challenged me to be strategic about the priorities of funders, and the grant that was funded is aligned with the work I’m really interested in.”
