Community Driven Research Day

December 9, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

COMMUNITY-DRIVEN RESEARCH DAY encourages collaborations between researchers and community based organizations (CBOs) and community groups who have research questions that they are interested in answering, specifically in ways that address social determinants of health. Through an interactive poster session, CBOs and community groups will highlight their questions to CDRD participants, who will include area nonprofits, community groups, public sector partners, and researchers from The 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.

This year’s theme is Partnering for Healthy and Safe Communities.
