NIDA's Diversity Workshop
Each year NIDA ODHD convenes a two-day Diversity Supplement Workshop, in Rockville, MD to bring together the current NIDA diversity supplement recipients at the pre-doctoral, postdoctoral, and early career investigator levels, and 20 undergraduate and post baccalaureate-level students from NIDA’s other diversity outreach programs. Participants meet and network with NIDA program staff and senior officials, and with NIDA-funded investigators (among them, former NIDA diversity supplement recipients and program directors of three of NIDA’s T32 Programs). Workshop participants received valuable information and guidance on NIDA research priorities and funding opportunities, on graduate school and postdoctoral training opportunities at NIDA’s research training sites, and on transitioning to independent research careers. This venue also provided recruitment opportunities for the students who are looking to pursue graduate training in substance abuse research. Poster presentations by current diversity supplement recipients highlighted Day Two of the workshop.
