Community Conversations: Face2Face with Dr. Charles Rogers and Harry Evans
At the Medical College of Wisconsin, the health of our Milwaukee-area community is at the heart of everything we do. This focus on Milwaukee is the driving force behind Community Conversations, a series of critical discussions on health reflecting a diversity of experiences.
The first installment of the series focused on mental health. For our next iteration in the series, the dialogue between MCW researchers and community members is brought to the forefront.
The videos feature Milwaukee community leaders appearing face to face with MCW faculty to discuss scientific research and its application to improving the health of our community. These conversations will be a starting point to foster better understanding of the research process, and to help bridge gaps that have historically been in place in clinical research.
The first conversation is between Charles R. Rogers, PhD, MPH, MS, a cancer disparities researcher at MCW, and Milwaukee community advocate Harry Evans. Evans is the founder of Heal Black Men, a space where black men can come to seek healing and understanding of themselves.
Together, they discussed a variety of topics including Dr. Rogers’ inspiration to become a researcher, disparities that exist in the research community and the importance of participating in clinical research.
