Penn hosts forum on the Intersection of Community, Academia, and Grantmaking

The University of Pennsylvania Center for Public Health Initiatives is sponsoring a symposium to offer insights into developing, pitching, and funding innovative project ideas that utilize community-academic partnerships.

Participants will receive an introduction from Giridhar Mallya of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation on "Partnering to Achieve Health Equity", followed by a "shark-tank style" pitch competition where the Penn Community Scholars will pitch their ideas to improve social and health outcomes in local communities. Pitches will be judged by a panel of funders and academics.

This symposium is part of the Penn Community Scholars Program, primarily supported by the the University of Pennsylvania's Office of the Provost, with additional support and partnership from the Penn Injury Science Center and the Center for Public Health Initiatives.
