Toronto Community Based Research Network Launch Event

9:00-11:30 a.m.
YMCA - 42 Charles St. East (across the street from the Wellesley Institute)

For over a year the Toronto Community Based Research Network (TCBRN) has been working on priorities identified during our last collective networking and learning session.  TCBRN is excited to launch the results of those efforts over the last 18 months and to provide another opportunity for those interested in community-based research (CBR) to network and engage in collective learning.

Join us to launch:

Environmental Scan of Research by Community Based Organizations within the Toronto Central LHIN  (December 2008)
The environmental scan documents the research activity being conducted by community organizations within the TC LHIN's catchment area, with a particular focus on community-based research and describes the education and resources being accessed by these organizations to enhance their research capacity. This environmental scan was funded by the University Health Network.
For Us, By Us: Peer Research 101
A 30 minute webcast video produced by Lisa Campbell for the TCBRN featuring the voices of community members who have been active as peer researchers on CBR projects in the Toronto area. In the webcast, community members describe how and why they became involved in CBR, their peer researcher roles, and the benefits and challenges of the CBR approach. Funding was provided by the CBR Working group of the Health and Learning Knowledge Centre of the Canadian Council on Learning.

Mark your calendars and be sure to join us on May 22nd !
