The overall goal of the 2015 Regional Community Partner Forums is to support the ability of community-based organizations and community leaders to play significant roles as partners in research, ultimately ensuring that the results of research are used to eliminate health disparities and achieve health equity in their communities. Specifically, the regional forums aim to:

  • Equip community leaders with the knowledge and skills needed to successfully negotiate community-academic research partnerships, fully engage as partners in health disparities research and ensure that research results are used to address health disparities in their communities;
  • Foster sustainable regional networks for community partner peer mentoring and professional development;
  • Connect regional efforts to CCPH's Community Network for Research Equity & Impact's (CNREI) previous work and national efforts to advocate for community partners in research.

Like the forums that preceded them, the 2015 Regional Community Partner Forums are uniquely designed “by and for” community partners to address the professional development and peer support they need to enhance their capacity for community-engaged research and community-academic research partnerships.
