The North Carolina Translational and Clinical Sciences (NC TraCS) Institute Community and Stakeholder Engagement (CaSE) Program works to promote and support community-engaged approaches to clinical and translational research, as well as build capacity for researchers and communities to engage in academic-community partnerships. In a continuation of those efforts, we are hosting two events on June 19th that will be centered on the subject of community and stakeholder engagement.
“Embracing Innovative Ideas from Multiple Stakeholders” will discuss common elements for success, change process, and key ingredients to stakeholder engagement in a collaborative effort.
“Engaging Communities in Research Partnerships: Tips and Tools for Success” will create a conversation on ways to build and strengthen academic-research partnerships to ensure bi-directional communication and stakeholder input from research conceptualization through dissemination. We will also discuss how community engaged research is relevant to local communities and different tools that researchers can use to interact with the community.
If you or anyone you know is in the Chapel Hill, NC area on June 19th, please feel free to pass along this information and stop by to learn about the CaSE program and NC TraCS.
