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.
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.
