The next Medicine: Mind the Gap webinar explores how to approach and conduct qualitative research projects and will familiarize participants with qualitative data collection and analysis techniques and tools. Sponsored by the NIH Office of Disease Prevention, the webinar will be led by Dr. LeConté Dill, an assistant professor in the department of community health sciences at the State University of New York Downstate School of Public Health.

Join the discussion on Thursday, Jan. 19 from 11 a.m. to noon. Registration is required and you will receive a confirmation email that contains detailed information about the webinar.

Through both lecture and real-time mini-exercises, participants will learn about understanding the role of theory in qualitative research, formulating research questions, sampling and recruitment, designing and implementing data collection tools and techniques, finding themes in the data and disseminating findings.

Dill will demonstrate multiple uses of qualitative data through her experiences as a public health practitioner and researcher working with community groups, local health departments and academic partners.

As a community-engaged researcher, Dill examines the relationship between adolescent development and processes of the built environment, such as gentrification, foreclosures and violence. Her recent work explores the multiple experiences of violence, coping and resistance among urban girls of color.

Dill will accept questions before and during her presentation via WebEx, email at and on Twitter with #NIHMtG.
