Transdisciplinary Community-Based Participatory Research Training Workshop

Featuring 12 nationally-recognized experts in Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR), this state-of-the-art, 2 ½ day workshop is geared especially for early stage investigators from various research and/or clinical backgrounds as well as researchers and clinicians more advanced in their career who want to further hone their community engagement skills. The workshop will be held at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC) in Memphis, TN from June 11-13, 2020.

As part of the workshop, trainees will learn how to create and sustain community partnerships in order to meaningfully impact cancer health disparities. In addition, trainees will have the opportunity to dialogue with nationally-recognized experts in CBPR who will present on a variety of CBPR components and discuss exemplars in CBPR research across the cancer continuum. In addition, trainees will have the opportunity to develop their own study ideas and receive feedback from CBPR experts. Trainees will engage in experiential learning and also will have the opportunity to tour the National Civil Rights Museum. Finally, trainees will be paired with a research mentor through the National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded National Research Mentoring Network (NRMN) for continued research mentorship for 1 year following the workshop. The overall vision of this workshop is to equip trainees with the knowledge and skills needed to submit a grant application by Fall 2021. 

Applications will be accepted through March 1, 2020. Registration is limited to 50 trainees, so applying early is encouraged.

Decisions made regarding acceptance will be made on a rolling basis. 

A limited number of scholarships are available.

The workshop is made possible through a grant from the National Cancer Institute (1R13CA232431; PIs: Martin and Christy).
