Case Center for Reducing Health Disparities

Mary Ellen Lawless, MA, RN, Research Nurse, works at the Case Center for Reducing Health Disparities. Lawless has a key role in providing CREC education training for community researchers.

To date, she has been involved in leading trainings for the 37 community researchers in Cleveland. According to Lawless, “Each project I have worked on has truly enriched my life. The community researchers each have unique life experiences, that when combined with CREC training, makes them a true and powerful group to conduct interviews for the Voicing and Action project. It has been a privilege to work with this project focused on the residents of East Cleveland”.
