Partners in Meeting Community Needs
Non-profit professionals, researchers, social services providers, and students were invited to join IBHRI and CSUN's BUILD PODER (NIH-funded) Program to discuss how non-profits and researchers can work together to increase health equity in local communities.
We welcomed expert speakers and panelists from various sectors, including academia, independent research organizations, and non-profit organizations. We addressed topics related to approaches and best practices in building community-researcher partnerships, (e.g., ethical issues that may arise, funding, grants, best practices). The outcome of successful collaborations is community service!
