2020 Research Readiness Day set for January 28th at CHOP

Community-Driven Research Day (CDRD) is a program that encourages collaboration between researchers and community-based organizations (CBOs)/community groups that have research questions they are interested in answering.

We 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.

Small grants are awarded to promising community partner-researcher collaborations annually through a competitive submission process.

Research Readiness Day

Date: Tuesday, January 28, 2020: 9:00am - 1:00pm

Location: Roberts Center for Pediatric Research

Research Readiness Day (RRD) is designed as a complement to CDRD to prepare participants to develop community-academic partnerships. RRD is a technical assistance event for CBOs and community groups interested in learning more about effective community/academic research partnerships.

This is a great opportunity for community organizations that presented posters at CDRD to gain technical assistance in developing their CDRD proposal.
