The TOS Research in Diverse Populations Section mission is to represent the interests of individuals of diverse backgrounds (including but not limited to: race, sex, ethnicity, sexual orientation and gender identity) at all levels of TOS. Current and potential Section members are encouraged to join us at this Section Business meeting to discuss Section goals during 2016-2017 and new goals for 2017-2018. We will recognize the top abstracts from the 7th annual Self-Guided Diversity Tour and the 2017 Shiriki Kumanyika Diversity and Disparities Leadership Award winner: Dr. Sara Bleich.
