Community Engagement

New ReACH Publication Provides a Step-by-Step Guide for Community Engagement in Research

Engaging the community from the start in identifying and addressing health issues through collaborative research increases the likelihood of long-term improvements in health status.  However, many medical and allied health researchers have few resources to guide them in establishing authentic and effective partnerships with community stakeholders.

The Society for Public Health Education (SOPHE), in collaboration with the University of Texas San Antonio and its community partners, has published a new e-book, Underserved Populations: Advancing Health, Engaging and Developing (UPAHEAD) Research Handbook.  With valuable links and tips, this handbook offers constructive guidance on best practices to establish a dynamic, community-academic partnership that utilizes the talents and unique knowledge of community members and the skills and resources of researchers to help address health issues.https://www.pcori.org/
