Community-Engaged Research Partnerships During COVID-19: Staying True to Principles of Engagement in Community-Engaged Research Partnerships during the COVID-19 Pandemic

The Alliance for Research in Chicagoland Communities (ARCC) at Northwestern University supports and promotes community-engaged research partnerships. During the COVID-19 pandemic, community-academic research collaborations need to consider how the pandemic is impacting health and equity in their communities and how research projects and partnerships can adjust in response.

Join our 2nd virtual zoom gathering to share and discuss experiences, ideas, and challenges about staying engaged as community-engaged research partnerships.
