Description: This is the third in a series of presentations about incorporating CBPR into your research program. This session will provide examples of how UGA researchers can recognize, address and meet the research community’s needs in their work. We recognize the importance of discussion about community needs, from methods of policy implementation to inclusion and representativeness. We will examine the components involved in matchmaking and gaining an understanding of community needs from a variety of research disciplines. We will discover ways for researchers and students new to community engagement to connect with these concepts.
