About Community Driven Research Day: 

To open this year’s event, a panel of past CDRD awardees and community-driven research experts will present on effective community-academic collaborations. Following the panel discussion, community-based organizations (CBOs) and community groups will participate in an interactive poster session to highlight their research questions of interests to researchers, public sector partners, and others interested in community-academic partnerships.

The Community Driven Research Day event is jointly sponsored by Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, Temple University College of Public Health, Thomas Jefferson University, The University of Pennsylvania, and Drexel University.

Each participating institution awards small grants to promising community partner-researcher collaborations through a competitive submission process post this event. 

Presenters - Call for Submissions from CBOs/community groups: 

CBOs and community groups interested in developing partnerships to conduct research are urged to participate in an interactive poster presentation that will highlight the organization’s/group’s mission, goals, and major accomplishments. Posters will display questions they are interested in answering to spark conversations with potential new partners.
Submissions to Present are due Tuesday, January 10, 2023

We, the CDRD committee, are committed to community-based participatory research, which includes the basic tenet that both community partners and research partners are involved in all phases of research, allowing community capacity and related opportunities to be developed and sustained. The focus of CDRD is about making connections and the CDRD organizing committee is willing to help facilitate connections.
