This free event will address how community-campus partnerships develop and engage for the successful conduct of research that leads to the translation of research discoveries for improved health and well-being. Our goals are to showcase current projects within different phases of the translational spectrum for possible future collaborations; (2) to identify methods for engaging the community in all phases of research; and (3) to build the capacity of community members and researchers interested in community-campus partnerships.

Community members, healthcare practitioners, researchers and students are welcome.

Our plenary presenters will include Kenneth Wells, MD, MPH the David Weil Professor of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences at the University of California Los Angles (UCLA) Jane and Terry Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior, David Geffen School of Medicine, Fielding School of Public Health, RAND Corporation and Greater Los Angeles VA Health System and Ms. Felica Jones the Executive Director of Healthy African American Families II (HAAF). Together, Ms. Jones and Dr. Wells will describe the Community Partners in Care (CPIC), a randomized trial study of group-level mental health safety net providers working together to implement quality improvement programs for depression in two communities of color.
