Community-Driven Research Day (CDRD) encourages collaboration between researchers and community-based organizations (CBOs)/community groups who have research questions that they are interested in answering about community approaches to improving health outcomes. Through an interactive poster session, CBOs and community groups will highlight their research questions to program participants who will include area non-profits, community groups, public sector partners, and researchers from The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, University of Pennsylvania, Temple University, Drexel University, and other local academic institutions. CBOs, community groups, academic researchers, and students will be able to meet and discuss potential, mutually-beneficial collaborations in the hopes of improving community health outcomes. 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.
Hosted by The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia at 3535 Market St, 16th Floor, Conference Room D, the 2013/2014 CDRD will be held on Thursday, January 30, 2014 with a theme of Community Approaches to Improving Health Outcomes.
Call for Submissions – CBOs & Community Groups
CBOs and community groups interested in developing partnerships to conduct research to improve community health are urged to participate in an interactive poster presentation that will highlight the organization/group’s mission, goals, and major accomplishments, as well as display questions that they are interested in answering about community approaches to improving health outcomes. Submission forms are due by January 10th. Click here for the submission form.

Funding Call for Proposals
To support research partnerships between CBOs who presented at CDRD and academic researchers, a call for proposals will be made available following CDRD. Through a competitive pilot grant program, we will support interdisciplinary, community-based participatory research in public health -- specifically community approaches to improving health outcomes. All pilot grants considered through the call for proposals must utilize a community-based participatory research approach (described above) and propose a research endeavor that builds and maintains respectful, trusting and mutually beneficial relationships between academic and community partners. Most grants awarded will be in the range of $2,000 to $10,000.
