Stakeholder Core

The Stakeholder Core, co-led by Roberta Carlin and Sherri Stahl, aims to integrate stakeholder perspectives into Cores and Programs and support the recruitment of older minorities. This Core will provide feedback on planned research, develop summaries, present at conferences, coauthor manuscripts and share study findings with their networks. The goal of the Core is to fill the need for bidirectional translations to and from the lab to clinics and communities and reciprocal interactions to engage communities and formulate research with relevance for researchers and affected communities.
