Please join us for the 11th annual Community-Driven Research Day, co-sponsored by the Center for Violence Prevention. The event will be held virtually on Thursday, 2/11 from 10am-12:30pm with a theme of Resilience and Action to Improve Health. The keynote speaker will be Barbara Israel, DrPh of the University of Michigan’s School of Public Health and the Detroit Community-Academic Urban Research Center.
The goal of Community-Driven Research Day is to encourage collaboration between university-based research partners and community-based organizations (CBOs) who have research questions that they are interested in answering. Through virtual presentations in themed breakout sessions, CBOs and community groups will highlight their questions to researchers from Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, The University of Pennsylvania, Temple University, Drexel University, Thomas Jefferson University, and Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. CBOs, community groups, academic researchers, and students will be able to virtually meet and discuss mutually-beneficial collaborations. This is a great opportunity for your community organization to connect with academic researchers who have an interest in community/academic partnerships around public health concerns such as violence prevention, poverty, homelessness, food insecurity, health and wellness, etc.
Following the event, up to eight $10,000 pilot grants will be made available to support interdisciplinary, community-based participatory research in health. The available funding is limited to presenters of Community-Driven Research Day in partnership with faculty of CHOP, Penn, Temple, Drexel, Jefferson, and PCOM.
Additional information can be found here. Community-Based Organizations interested in presenting can register HERE (the deadline has just been extended to 1/29/21 ).
