It was similarly disheartening for participants of Asian descent; 55% of PIs set goals to recruit, but only 9% met goals. Native Hawaiians/Pacific Islanders (35% set goals; 0% met goals), and American Indians (23% set goals; 0% met goals) were also drastically underrepresented in spite of the goals of the PIs and the approval (and funding) of the sponsoring agency.
