Community Driven Research Day

December 5, 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 address local solutions to health challenges. 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, and Thomas Jefferson University. 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.

Hosted by Temple University, the 2017/2018 CDRD will be held on Tuesday, December 5, 2017 with a theme of Local Solutions to Health Challenges.
