To address the NIH emphasis on improved health and research in underserved populations, the Southern California Clinical and Translational Science Institute (SC CTSI) has launched a mentorship initiative to connect young clinician scientists with experienced health care professionals in the Los Angeles region.

The goal of the Community Mentorship Initiative is to help newer researchers establish productive community partnerships that accelerate the impact of their research on human and community health. Open to KL2 Scholars and TL1 Trainees, the project is a collaboration between SC CTSI's Workforce Development  (WD) and Community Engagement (CE) core groups.
