Daphne Watkins Receives Research Grant from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute

May 21, 2024

Professor Daphne Watkins is the principal investigator in a new R01 research grant from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute titled “Addressing Structural Racism in Heart Failure Care and Outcomes: A Mixed Methods Evaluation of The Social Structure of Care Delivery.” The goal of the project is to develop a comprehensive understanding of structural barriers as well as facilitators for equitable care and outcomes, and to develop a best practices toolkit to address structural racism and discrimination in heart failure care. 

"Addressing racism and discrimination at the structural level is essential if we want to move toward health equity in heart failure care and outcomes,” said Watkins.  “I am excited to be a part of such a dynamic team of researchers and clinicians who want to understand and improve heart failure delivery networks within the social structure of care delivery. In the long term, our goal is to advance equitable care and outcomes for patients.”
