  • Urban Health Summer Institute - Community-Based Participatory Research

    June 24, 2019 through June 28, 2019

    Community-based participatory research (CBPR) is an orientation to research that begins with community research interests and seeks to use the knowledge gained to inform action for community health improvements and social change. Although this approach to research is widely adopted in urban health and generally familiar to both community-based organizations and researchers, many still struggle with the lack of knowledge or experience with applying practical CBPR approaches to a pressing community health issue or potential research partnership.
