Community-Driven Research Day

Community-Driven Research Day 2016/2017

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, specifically in ways that utilize novel approaches to community health promotion. 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 Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, The University of Pennsylvania, Temple University, Drexel University, Jefferson University and other local academic institutions. CBOs, community groups, academic researchers, and students will be able to meet and discuss potential, mutually-beneficial collaborations. 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.

Thank you to all of the researchers, CBOs, and community groups who attended the 2016/2017 CDRD on Wednesday, December 7, 2016 with a theme of Novel Approaches to Community Health Promotion.
