ICTR Partners with Stakeholders to Advance Community Engaged Research

 

Since, the spring of 2017, the Johns Hopkins Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR) has hosted a series of forums and community wide seminars to advance community engaged research. These forums have included a diverse group of researchers, community members, service agencies, and other stakeholders in the Greater Baltimore-DC region; as well as our academic partners, University of Maryland and Morgan State University. ICTR Research Participant and Community Partnership program director, Cheryl Dennison- Himmelfarb, stated, “Members of our Community Research Advisory Council (C-RAC) and colleagues at University of Maryland and Morgan State University have been essential partners in blazing a path forward with engagement of diverse communities in all aspects of the next phase of the Johns Hopkins ICTR.”

The most recent workshop, “Nuts & Bolts of Community Engagement in Research,” was held December 1, 2017.  Attendees participated in break out sessions that focused on budgeting, power sharing, challenges and possible solutions to common obstacles faced when interacting with community members.
