The overarching goal of the newly named Center for Community-Engaged Research is to facilitate active engagement and participation by community stakeholders as partners in all stages of the clinical and translational research process to improve community health.
To achieve this goal we propose the following specific aims:
Aim 1: Expand bi-directional communication with St. Louis communities aimed to make research within the ICTS more relevant and responsive to the health needs and priorities of the entire community.
Aim 2: Provide ongoing education to ICTS investigators and trainees on the scientific and ethical principles of community-engaged research and provide them strategies for developing and disseminating culturally appropriate information about research findings. Provide ongoing education to the public and to St. Louis community organizations about the importance of research participation to improve health and the quality of health care in the region.
Aim 3: Strengthen and expand collaborative research partnerships between ICTS Cores, investigators, trainees and community stakeholders to create synergy and facilitate conducting effective and responsive community-engaged research to promote community health.
