The Mind Body Clinical Research Center (MB-CRC) is dedicated to fostering scholarly growth. Our goal is to have trainees at different levels participate in research and clinical activities and to provide clinical workshops for community professionals. The center is particularly committed to working with individuals traditionally underrepresented in academia. The plan for training developing scholars is to fully engage them in the research process and to foster independent growth as a clinical-scientist. We also provide workshops for the community and businesses.
