From the director’s desk: Engaging the community in health research

Traditional models of conducting translational research studies are changing.

Our hope is that these promising approaches will improve healthcare delivery, create more effective health policies, and alleviate community members’ oft expressed frustration with researchers who are “here today but gone tomorrow”.
