Second Part of COVID, and Research Webinars Offered

POTSDAM, NY - St. Lawrence Health System’s Clinical and Rural Health Research Department is accepting registrations for the second part of two different webinars they are hosting; one focuses on patient-centered research, and the other with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Part 2 of the free, three-part web series entitled Learning Together, Leading Together: Shaping Patient-Centered Research in the North Country will be held from 9:00am – 11:00am on Wednesday, November 11. The topic for Part 2 is Research Methods and Engagement Principles, and will be led by Clinical Research Coordinator Daniel Jaremczuk, and Clinical Research Coordinator and Community Partner Kylie Tower.

The discussion will include identifying three main types of research, understanding six essential steps in conducting a research project, and demonstrating and explaining the engagement principles of patient-centered research in an effort to help you feel confident in your ability to conduct/help conduct a patient-centered research study in your community.

Mark your calendar for Part 3 of the series to be held on December 9 from 9:00am – 11:00am. Funding for this three-part series comes from the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute® (PCORI®).

Additionally, Part 2 of the free COVID-19 Public Information Session series will be held from 3:00pm – 4:00pm on Thursday, November 19. The topic will be COVID-19 In Rural America, and will be led by COVID-19 Treatment team member and Canton-Potsdam Hospital Rheumatologist Eyal Kedar, MD.

Dr. Kedar will discuss how COVID-19 can be treated, and how the pandemic is different here than in urban America. Funding for this webinar project is also through PCORI, and is part of a COVID-19 Enhancement, which supplements the Research Department’s ongoing Eugene Washington Engagement Award with PCORI.
