  • Complete I-REACH’s unique foundational curriculum on aging, disparities and cancer.
  • Have access to the Data and Stakeholder Cores to help design and refine research while using I-REACH’s multi-level framework.
  • Participate in Idea Labs, peer-to-peer writing groups, mock study sessions and will attend and co-lead monthly I-REACH meetings.
  • Design a research project and will be given preference when submitting their proposals for consideration in the Pilot Program, which will support and fund collaborative work.
