Effective Practices for Community Engaged Research

Tuesday, October 16, 2018 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm

Kenisha Bethea, MPH, Research Program Lead, Community Engagement, Duke Clinical and Translational Science Institute

We invite all Bass Connections students, faculty and staff to join us for this session on best practices for conducting effective community engaged research.

Bass Connections teams engage with local and global communities in a wide variety of ways – from direct partnerships with a community organization around a research question, to working with the community to collect data, to conducting research intended to benefit a specific community. Over the past five years, our teams have worked with over 155 external partners in 31 countries worldwide, including many partnerships right here in Durham. Community partners have included nonprofits, universities, school systems, hospitals, government agencies and private companies.

Effective community engagement is critical to conducting research around societal challenges, but it’s not always simple.

Join us for this interactive session to learn more about:

  • Benefits of community engaged research
  • Common challenges to conducting community engaged research
  • Principles and best practices for effective community engaged research

Lunch will be provided. Please RSVP to Laura Howes and include any dietary restrictions.
