Our research team members are allies to the Black Lives Matter movement. For individuals who identify as Black or African American, we support you. Although we cannot take away the pain and grief your racial group has had to endure and continues to experience, we are listening to you and advocating for your rights to feel safe and respected. We stand in solidarity with those who seek change and do our best to serve as your allies.
You and your children are important members of the community. We want you to feel welcome and valued when you come to the lab to participate in research studies.
