Community-Engaged Research Partnerships During COVID-19: Dialogues to Build Collective Knowledge

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 3rd virtual zoom gathering to participate in small group dialogues to share and discuss experiences, ideas, and challenges and build our collective knowledge about staying engaged as community-engaged research partnerships. Submit questions in advance to that you would like discussed.
