Overview

The Community Engagement program is a well-established resource linking investigators and community partners to implement the mission of building capacity and infrastructure for clinical and translational research among investigators, patients, health care providers, policymakers, and community-based organizations. The program leverages institutional centers and resources focused on community and stakeholder partnerships. This resource can help researchers forge relationships with community partners, California health agencies, and elected officials around health and health care issues through collaborations. The Research and Education Community Advisory Board supports health-related communication and partnerships and bridges researchers with underserved communities. The Community Review Board provides a specialized consultation session for health researchers developing community- or patient-centered research proposals. 

Upcoming Events

Racial Healing Circles, December 20, 6-9 p.m.

Session 4: Culmination of the Healing Process

Join us and share your stories about race, culture, color, language and class to promote healing. The RECAB Racial Healing Circles seek to create a safe space to foster dialogue on healing and resiliency among academic and community partners to proactively strengthen our collective ability to acknowledge racism and discrimination that is affecting many community members of our academic institution and the public at-large. The project will focus on convening academic-community oriented healing circles on sensitive topics about race, culture, color and class. We will be adopting the Attitudinal Healing Connection's model of defining racism as a life threatening disease. We express that the concept of race is a social and cultural construct.

The focus will be on storytelling and narrative change. Open to all. Free admission, dinner, and reserved parking at UC Davis Health, Sacramento, register online. For more information contact F. Malik at ftmalik@ucdavis.edu or (916) 703-9138.

This program is funded by the UC Davis Health Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion. This collaborative effort is organized by the UC Davis Clinical and Translational Science Center and Center for Reducing Health Disparities. The Racial Healing Circles are adopted and modeled after the Attitudinal Healing Connection, an Oakland-based organization, that is devoted to building srong, healthy communities.
