Dr. Nicole Bowles, PhD was selected to participate in the Program to Increase Diversity in Behavioral Medicine and Sleep Disorders Research (PRIDE) Summer Institute at NYU’s Langone’s Center for Healthful Behavior Change at the end of July. The PRIDE Summer Institute offers an intensive, multidisciplinary research training and mentorship to junior-level faculty members and other scientists who come from underrepresented racial and ethnic minority groups or who have a disability. PRIDE is funded by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI).
During the two-week PRIDE Summer Institute, the 12 selected participants will develop skills needed to apply for independent research grants in behavioral medicine and sleep disorders. The program offers individualized training in the fundamentals of health disparities research, grant writing, and peer review. Guidance and mentorship will be facilitated by NHLBI staff, as well as recognized faculty experts in the fields of cardiovascular health, behavioral medicine, and sleep disorders. Congratulations on the opportunity, Dr. Bowles.
