13th RCMI International Symposium on Health Disparities
San Juan, Puerto Rico
RCMI 2012 International Health Disparities Symposium Dedicated to Dr. Sidney A. McNairy, Jr.
The Research Centers in Minority Institutions (RCMI) 2012 Symposium Planning Committee is pleased to announce the dedication of the 13th International Symposium on Health Disparities to Dr. Sidney A. McNairy, Jr. Dr. McNairy’s twenty-five years of exemplary leadership contributed to the development and growth of the RCMI program. He championed the idea that researchers in minority and other small and developing institutions can compete with scientists at majority institutions if presented with the same resources and opportunities. Dr. McNairy worked to foster biomedical research environments in minority institutions that have given thousands of researcher’s access to scientific and educational resources and ensured that a diverse group of scientists contribute to the biomedical research advances that lead to improved health for all.
