On January 27, 2021, Community-Campus Partnerships for Health (CCPH) hosted a webinar titled “From Practice to Policy Using a Community-Based Participatory Research Approach” with the Detroit Urban Research Center and their CBPR Partnership Academy.
Description: As we continue to witness and experience inequities and disparities across communities it is critical that we understand the role that research has in leveraging the political agenda to impact the well-being of communities. Community-based participatory research (CBPR) in particular is at the crux of bridging evidence and policy. To advance the progress of this translation we must examine the linkage between CBPR and policy, assess the current landscape, and highlight and replicate successful examples. This webinar seeks to develop a narrative to advocate for and push forward CBPR work that influences policy.
