Community Engagement Program

"As you discover what strength you can draw from your community in this world from which it stands apart, look outward as well as inward. Build bridges instead of walls."
~ Sonia Sotomayor 


The primary goal of Community Engagement (CE) in the CCTS is to improve the health of communities through CE research and participatory bidirectional capacity building, especially in areas where health disparities are pronounced.


Prevention of diseases and effective treatments can no longer be conducted in medical centers in isolation of the community. CE engages with partners in the research and dissemination process, subscribing to the true spirit of participatory bidirectional capacity building by a focus on a community-centered approach, which rather than affect change in communities externally, includes the community in every aspect of health care delivery and research.
