Dr. Giselle Corbie-Smith is currently involved with several research projects. She developed and is currently testing several methods to increase minority participation in research in North Carolina. Corbie-Smith’s Project EAST assesses the novel approach of using a mobile unit to recruit and conduct HIV/AIDS clinical trials in rural communities in North Carolina. Her Project GRACE Consortium employs community based participatory research (CBPR) to partnership development and intervention design in order to eliminate health disparities in African-American communities. Corbie-Smith’s project ALMA (Amigas Latinas Motivando el Alma), a collaborative effort with Duke University’s School of Medicine uses lay health advisers to promote emotional health and reduce mental health stressors for Latinas.
