President Biden Signs Bill Strengthening Research Diversity

Posted on by

On March 18, President Biden signed the John Lewis National Institute of Minority Health Disparities (NIMHD) Research Endowment Revitalization Act of 2021. It was my honor to be present in the Oval Office for the signing.

The Act expands eligibility to help institutions build research infrastructure and recruit, train, and maintain a diverse student body and faculty. Credit: The White House
