This Los Angeles map shows strength of the network, the ethnic diversity of Los Angeles, and the strategic geographic placement of the CHIC community partners to engage the diverse populations in clinical research. Specifically, darker shaded areas are predominantly ethnic minority; unshaded areas are multicultural with no predominant ethnic group; and the remainder (suburban) of the areas are majority white, but most of these areas have 20-30% of the population representing ethnic minority groups.  

The CHIC community partners (see org chart) are a broad, interdisciplinary research team across...
RAND Health (CHIC Coordinating Center),
David Geffen School of Medicine,
Neuropsychiatric Institute at UCLA ,and
Charles R Drew University of Medicine and Science
