Dr. Narayanasamy Wins Dean’s Research Award

Congratulations to current Global Health Pathway resident, Dr. Shanti Narayanasamy, on winning the Dean’s Research Award for Master’s Students! Her project, entitled “Attending to Race: Exploring How Physicians and Medical Students Operationalize Race in Medicine”, aims to conduct a Duke-wide survey and interviews of physicians and medical students to understand how race influences their clinical practices.  Dr. Narayanasamy hopes to develop educational interventions on race and medicine and provide feedback to participating departments to support their Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion work.

The award provides funding to be used towards the purchase of materials and supplies, degree completion and for research or conference travel.
