Community Outreach

Community Outreach and Engagement The Community Outreach and Engagement Core will be the Translational Research Arm of the project to plan the best strategy to translate research findings from the bench and bedside and serve to address specific measures of wellness or disease patterns in the target communities. It will also help expand knowledge on how best to generate behavior modification for health promotion, disease prevention and advocacy among minority populations. The community outreach and engagement focus of this core will be driven by outputs from the obesity projects proposed in the research core of this application.  In order to effectively implement and achieve these aims, the core will take three steps: 1) form partnerships, 2) structure the community for engagement and 3) engage the community for education and promotion intervention to support research while addressing health disparities research and advocacy
