Dr. Deborah Crabbe will receive funding from the Edna Kynett Foundation to start a pilot program which provides mentorship and research training experiences to medical trainees from under-represented minority groups focused on Racial- and Sex-specific Cardiovascular Disease Disparities in COVID-19.
