Community based participatory research is an effective tool for engaging diverse populations. This session will discuss “social justice” in terms of translating research results into actions.
Session Objectives: At the end of this session, participants will be better able to: • Define the community health workers role as "natural researchers" and their unique access to authentic research information. • Define strategies to engage language-isolated communities. • List facilitating factors and challenges experienced by community members advocating for policy change.
