Community Engaged Research Lecture

What is community engaged research and why should you consider community engagement as you design and carry out your research? Why are national funding agencies encouraging—and sometimes requiring—community engagement plans in research studies?

Discuss the benefits of engaging communities in health research at our first Community Engagement Lecture.

A nationally recognized expert on Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR), Dr. Parker’s work centers on engaging community members in the design, implementation, and evaluation of research interventions, and translating and disseminating research findings for program and policy change.
