Community Engaged Research Symposia


December 2020 marked the third annual Community Engaged Research Symposium: Advancing Health Equity. Speakers offered their insight and perspectives of working collaboratively with academic researchers and the community – discussing issues of trust, expectations, value, capacity and compensation – as well as providing examples of successful partnerships.


This symposium provides opportunities for researchers and stakeholders/community members to learn about and discuss the benefits gained from CEnR, as well as its challenges and strategies for conducting this work. Speakers expand upon last year's theme of community engaged research in cardiovascular disease and cancer care by emphasizing the importance of implementing research that is both culturally competent and sensitive, especially as it relates to gender equities and LGBT health.


In 2016, OCHECE was awarded a PCORI Engagement Award to establish Detroit HealthLink for Equity in Cancer Care, an academic-community partnership that includes “Cancer Action Councils,” local community stakeholder groups of cancer survivors, caregivers, and advocates. These councils met monthly to complete a research capacity-building curriculum, set research priorities, develop specific research questions, and cultivate relationships with academic researchers. The symposium will include presentations by these stakeholders, as well as presentations from our university’s Hypertension Community Advisory Board.
