Overview

The regional community partner forum, "Achieving the Promise of Community-Engaged Health Research" was held March 8, 2012 in New York City.  Community engagement in research is central to understanding and addressing racial, ethnic and socioeconomic disparities in health. Research funding agencies are supporting faculty members and institutions to engage communities as partners in conducting research. As more community organizations enter into research partnerships with institutions as well as initiate and conduct research, it is clear that they need their own networks for professional development, mentoring and advocacy in order to advance the social change through knowledge and power sharing that must happen if we are to achieve health equity in this country.  Designed “by and for” community organizations involved in health research, the forum examined and addressed the challenges and issues that community partners face and enhanced their knowledge and skills.   The forum was attended by nearly 100 experienced and novice community partners involved in collaborations with New York Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSAs) and other institutions.   The forum also drew participants from outside of New York, including Arkansas, Massachusetts, South Carolina and Texas.
 

Forum Goals

  • To share knowledge, provide mentorship and make recommendations around community review of proposed research, governance structures for research, community engagement in the research process, and funding the community infrastructure needed to conduct research.
  • To disseminate knowledge shared and generated at the forum through accessible products that participants jointly coauthor.
  • To establish a NYC network of community partners that facilitates ongoing shared learning, professional development and advocacy.

 
Forum Guiding Questions

  • How do we ensure that communities most affected by health disparities have a voice at the tables that decide what research gets conducted, how and by whom?
  • How do we support communities most affected by health disparities to conduct and manage their own research?
  • How do we ensure that communities work as equal partners with universities and other institutions to make sure that community research interests are met?
  • How do we ensure that social justice is central to community-engaged research?
  • How do we form effective networks for furthering dialogue and action around community knowledge development and equitable community-academic partnerships?
