  Why engage people of color into
  research?

     Poor demographic representation in
      research

      Minorities

      Barriers to research from community
      perspective
   Suspicious of clinical research and PI intentions.
    Who really benefits?
   People want access to health care, health
    education and health screenings not research.
   Want PIs to be concerned about all of their
    medical concerns not just the organ in the study.
   Community groups want to participate as
    colleagues and equals.
