Center for Community Health Equity Research's CBPR Training Workshop

Thursday, January 17, 2019 - 8:30am to 4:30pm
UMass Springfield, Tower Square, Springfield MA
The Center for Community Health Equity Research, in partnership with Project ACCCES, is offering a free one-day training on principles and ethics of community-engaged research on January 17, 2019. Please join local community engagement trainers for immersive workshops and activities designed to build skills and expertise on key questions such as:

•  How do I build an authentic research partnership with community organizations that is mutually beneficial?
•  What is cultural humility?
•  How do we make our research findings useful to all partners? 
 
Researchers in a range of fields share the goal of doing community-based research that is equitable, ethical and rewarding for community partners, but we aren’t always sure how to accomplish that. This free training is designed to provide faculty and advanced graduate students an overview of foundational principles and ethics for community engagement for those who are just getting started, and those who have been at it for awhile.
 
Who:    For UMass faculty and advanced graduate students
Where: UMass Springfield, Tower Square, Springfield
When:  8:30am-4:30pm, January 17, 2019
