Connecting Community to Research Training Program Toolkit

In July 2015, our team at Boston University and Boston Medial Center partnered with a Community Advisory Board to design a training curriculum for community members who are ready and willing to partner in health research. The Connecting Community to Research (CCR) training introduces trainees to basic research concepts, highlights opportunities to partner with researchers, and emphasizes storytelling skills as a way to contribute to the health and wellness of communities.

The Connecting Community to Research Toolkit allows any community engaged research partnership to customize and deliver the training themselves. Click here to fill out a short form and download the Connecting Community to Research toolkit.
