NICHD STRIVE for Change

Demographics to include presentation as a common data element

Description :

As I watched the second STRIVE Workshop and then a subsequent conference on Early Pregnancy Loss Day 1/Day 2 at https://videocast.nih.gov/watch=42464 and https://videocast.nih.gov/watch=42466 I realized that as the panelist at the end lifted up the ability to collect uterine cells from effluent and the need to maintain a racial demographic component, we were missing the opportunity to collect another vital component of identity, how others perceive and react to you.  I think this is important to shift the conversation from race as a demographic consideration to race as a social construct and support exploration of racism/colorism impacts in future work.
