There is an increased need for minority representation in biomedical and nursing research.
Factors such as lack of suitable mentors, inadequate academic preparation, and poor self-image contribute to minorities not seeking graduate education and careers in research.
This article presents an overview of a federally funded research project, Minority Biomedical Research Support (MBRS), that provided opportunities for Native Americans to participate in and gain experience with a research project.
The project involved a qualitative study that investigated diabetes mellitus in the Navajo and Hopi peoples.
Students were trained in all aspects of the research process including data collection and analysis and the preparation of final reports.
