Ana F. Diallo, Ph.D., M.P.H., RN, assistant professor at the VCU School of Nursing and a faculty member of VCU’s Institute of Inclusion, Inquiry & Innovation (iCubed), has been accepted into the Program to Increase Diversity in Cardiovascular Health-Related Research (PRIDE-CVD) Summer Institute.

A highly competitive faculty development program sponsored by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, the summer institute aims to increase the number of scientists and research-oriented faculty who are from backgrounds currently under-represented in the biomedical sciences and those with disabilities, by preparing them to successfully compete for external funding for scientific research in heart, lung, blood, and sleep (HLBS) disorders.

PRIDE-CVD will instruct scientists/clinicians in multidisciplinary approaches to research in cardiovascular health disparities. It will be held virtually from June 14-26.

Diallo’s research focus is to understand the gene-environment interactions involved in cardiovascular diseases in diverse population groups. In her faculty role, she teaches courses focused on community health, evidence-based practice and food insecurity as a social determinant of health.
