Department of Family Medicine researchers were in full force at the recent North American Primary Care Research Group’s (NAPCRG) annual meeting, held this year in Phoenix after a two-year hiatus from live meetings due to COVID-19.
U-M Family Medicine Professor Diane Harper, M.D., NAPCRG’s outgoing president, gave the welcome address for the annual meeting, which marked the 50th anniversary of the event.
Department researchers led three workshops, three oral presentations, and five poster presentations on a wide variety of topics relevant to primary care providers. Sessions included a well-attended workshop on the cultivation of anti-racist research practices; newborn drug testing, intimate partner violence, and influences on HPV vaccine hesitancy; and working with gender minority patients in a primary care practice, among other topics.
“It was exciting to see so many of our faculty members present at this important primary care research conference,” said Jim Aikens, Ph.D., the department’s associate chair for Research Programs. “Our researchers showed to the international research community just a select few of the many world class research projects, programs and initiatives for which our department is renowned .”
