Expanded partnerships, hybrid delivery, and exploring power and privilege are just some of the enhancements to the Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR) training program developed by the UR Clinical and Translational Science Institute (UR CTSI) and Center for Community Health & Prevention (CCHP). Join Laura Sugarwala, MBA, RD, of CCHP, and  John P. Cullen, PhD, of UR CTSI, to gain practical insights into the development and refinement of the CBPR training program, initially derived from Columbia University's Irving Institute for Clinical and Translational Research.

This session will shed light on our collaborative approach with community partners and faculty in crafting a tailored curriculum aimed at both community members and university researchers. We’ll discuss our strategic course expansion efforts, the provision of opportunities for participants to apply for grant funding, and the importance of compensating community members for their time. Learn how we navigated challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic by pivoting to virtual platforms, discover the impactful progression of past participants who have transitioned into presenters, and explore evaluation mechanisms for community-engaged work. This webinar offers a pragmatic exploration of the program’s evolution, providing valuable takeaways for those interested in effective community-engaged research training programs.


This event,  hosted by the Trial Innovation Network, is made available to the University of Rochester community via the UR Clinical and Translational Science Institute.
