Community Engagement

Providing consultation to facilitate community-centered research

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

We do this by:

  • Connecting and building relationships with community stakeholders and organizations
  • Consultation with Community Engagement Advisory Boards:
    • Central Ohio Community Engagement Advisory Board (CEAB)
    • Southeast Ohio Community Engagement Advisory Board (SEO CEAB)
    • OSU and NCH Community Engagement Faculty Advisory Board (CE FAB)
  • Culturally sensitive research protocols for recruitment/retention, intervention, dissemination, and translation
  • Consultation for study measures, study measures, and dissemination of results to community stakeholders
  • Public Health Accreditation Board requirement documentation
