Webinar: From Practice to Policy Using a Community-Based Participatory Research Approach

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 sought to develop a narrative to advocate for and push forward CBPR work that influences policy.

This webinar, held on January 27, 2021, was sponsored by the Detroit Urban Research Center in partnership with Community-Campus Partnerships for Health (CCPH) as part of the CBPR Partnership Academy, which is funded by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS).
