4020.0 Participatory Public Health Research

Tuesday, November 1, 2011: 8:30 AM
This session, Participatory public health research: Engagement with under-resourced communities and communities of color in Massachusetts presents a cluster of case examples of research on social determinants of racial and ethnic health disparities; public health interventions research; clinical research of chronic disease management in community health center populations; and community academic partnerships for building healthier communities. A national leader in health reform, Massachusetts has an even richer history and legacy in public health, Boston being home to the first public health department and the first community health center in the nation and at the forefront of public health research for building healthy communities.
Session Objectives: (1) Identify elements of successful participatory research partnerships (2) Describe methods used to translate research into public health interventions (3) Discuss strategies to increase the use of research to inform and influence public policy and to promote health equity
