Community-Based Participatory Research 202: from project development to partnership building

9:00 a.m. to 3:45 p.m.

Room 308, Metro Hall

55 John Street

Increasingly, we are hearing calls for innovative, partnership approaches to addressing urban health research questions. Community-based participatory research (CBPR) enhances capacities and empowers communities by inviting their equitable involvement as research partners. CBPR can influence changes in policy and in the delivery of programs and services for vulnerable groups. Ultimately, it is a means of generating knowledge about health priorities, with the broader goals of strengthening communities and improving quality of life.

Building on introductory CBPR workshops offered last year, the Wellesley Central Health Corporation presents a one-day workshop.
