Mayo Clinic supports many diversity-related organizations throughout Florida, including:
Community Research Advisory Board
The Community Research Advisory Board (CRAB) was developed under the leadership of Floyd B. Willis, M.D. The board acts to:
- Review research protocols and provide feedback to investigators about their proposed study design based on diverse perspectives
