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.
