Sign up today for West Virginia Virtual Community Convening on Research and Health

On August 25, the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) will host a West Virginia Virtual Community Convening on Research and Health. PCORI is honored to join Senator Shelley Moore Capito, local leaders, and members of the West Virginia community to discuss important topics, such as rural health and equitable access to high-quality health care.

PCORI is an independent, inclusive, and impactful research funding organization that seeks to give patients and those who care for them information they can use when making their healthcare choices. We do this by producing and promoting information from research guided by patients, caregivers, and the broader healthcare community. We fund comparative clinical effectiveness research and patient-centered outcomes research that seeks to answer real-world questions about which treatment or therapy works best for whom and under what circumstances.

This virtual event represents an opportunity to speak with community health leaders, learn about ways to engage with PCORI, and offer your input about the health priorities and key issues facing your region. The conversation and your input will shape PCORI’s work to create our bold new Strategic Plan, and the feedback we receive will inform the foundation for PCORI’s future work.


Beginning in 2020, PCORI embarked on a strategic initiative to identify new priorities to direct our work in the years ahead. In the latest step in this process, PCORI’s Board of Governors in June approved posting for public comment five proposed National Priorities for Health developed in consultation with hundreds of stakeholders, advisors, and experts. They are:

  • Increase Evidence for Existing Interventions and Emerging Innovations in Health
  • Enhance Infrastructure to Accelerate Patient-Centered Outcomes Research
  • Advance the Science of Dissemination, Implementation, and Health Communication
  • Achieve Health Equity
  • Accelerate Progress Toward an Integrated Learning Health System

We invite you to join and engage with PCORI during this important time in our evolution and share any input or perspectives you may have on these priorities, rural health, and equitable access to care, as well as the organization’s strategic planning more broadly. We look forward to this important and timely convening. Visit our event webpage for further details and to register today.
