Academic-Community Partnerships: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

Tuesday, November 5, 2013: 8:30 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.
Academic community partnerships can be rewarding and complex. The panelists in this session will discuss and describe the strategies, benefits, opportunities and challenges that are involved with developing and sustaining academic community partnerships. These topics are relevant and significant to researchers, public health professionals, community stakeholders and practitioners engaged in CBPR, or community based public health initiatives.
Session Objectives: Identify factors that promote or inhibit investigating and addressing the social determinants of health (SDH) throughout a community-based participatory research (CBPR) process. Describe how a CBPR approach can result in scientific enhancements and community improvements. Explain how to build a university's commitment to be responsive to its host communities and embody a spirit of institutional responsibility. Demonstrate that a strong community partnership can contribute to reducing CVD risk among African-American adults in the community-congregation setting.
