JAX Summit Provides Education on Patient-Centered Outcomes Research

On Sept. 28, 2019, the Hispanic Outreach and Panel for Patient Engagement en Espanol (HOPE2) Project, led by Richard O. White, M.D., invited 50 local Hispanic and Latinx community leaders to participate in the JAX Summit workshop.

The workshop was funded by a Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute engagement award. The purpose of the workshop was to educate attendees about patient-centered outcomes research methods and work with them to identify and develop research projects to address the key health issues facing communities.

"The HOPE2-JAX Summit was the first of its kind for our Hispanic community. We hope to advance health care and address health inequities by leveraging patient-centered outcomes research and serving our community," said Dr. White.

Dr. White and his staff will continue to expand their vision of providing health education that will both empower and transform the community and leave an imprint for those to follow.

"The most awesome component of the summit was that when we departed, there was one voice, one message and 100% commitment among this group of Hispanic leaders. The commitment to improve the health and well-being of our Hispanic community is paramount. I found it to be a highly impactful meeting," stated Ed Perez, president and CEO of Three Grains of Rice Missions and a community leader.
