It's our differences that make all the difference.
Sacramento is our home and we know that “the City of Trees” and its surrounding region comprise one of the most racially diverse, multicultural, and vibrant communities in the nation. We not only work here. We live here too. These are our communities. And we are proud to be a part of it.
Diversity in a research program is important for several reasons. First, where we live, how we live, and our background can all affect our health. Second, many groups of people have been left out of research in the past. This means we know less about their health.
