Introduction: Community-Engaged Research Funding Opportunity
Are you interested in doing community-engaged research? Want to get $30K for your project AND partner with a community member who has received ITM training and will collaborate with you from day one to build your study Don’t miss this opportunity from ITM-Illinois Tech!
This virtual seminar will summarize how community-engaged research projects address ITM’s priority of health equity. The seminar will review basics of community-based participatory research (CBPR) projects that are rooted by a focal health concern (e.g., long COVID, diabetes, hypertension, or clinical depression). The CBPR team represents a partnership among health researchers and people with lived experience. People with lived experience have (1) a personal past or current history of the focal condition and (2) are from a diverse community (e.g., ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, age). The seminar provides directions on how to assemble and engage a team of partners grounded in a focal health condition. It summarizes step-by-step guidelines to do CBPR. The seminar ends with a review of the request for applications (RFA) governing this grant opportunity; the formal call will be released January 22, 2024.
